Socrates Cafe is a forum for discussion, where we get together and discuss important issues of significant moral and ethical impact. Participating in a Socrates Cafe enables you to explore and discover through question and conversation, with everyone encouraged to express their opinion and everyone learning from each other. 

At the beginning of each meeting, attendees suggest topics and group selects one for discussion. Past discussions have included: Can prisons deter crime? What is reality? Can racism be eradicated? Do we need laws? Do we have free will?

Registration is required for this event. Zoom meeting information will be sent to you by the program's facilitator prior to the program's start. Watch for the email!
