Philosophy in the Public Interest creates opportunities for guided community conversations about topics as timeless as friendship and as pressing as U.S. immigration policy. These programs create opportunities to gather together, listen with care, speak thoughtfully and respectfully, and learn more about our world, about each other, and about ourselves. The mission of Philosophy in the Public Interest is to create opportunities for deliberation and reflection that benefit the people and communities of northern Arizona.
