Communication: Media Practices Major
A senior at the University of New Hampshire, Paige Verrillo studies Communication with a focus in Media Practices. She shares her favorite experience working with the Civil Discourse Lab:
"My favorite experience working with the CDL was our Stories and Voices event of 2020 when we partnered with the faculty from the Sustainability Insitute and talked about racial equity relating to U.S. food system. We hosted three public dialogues that coincided with the timing and content of the 21 Day Habit Building Racial Equity Challenge. The themes of these events included acknowledging Indigenous People and their relationship to food and land, Invisibility and Racism, and Responsibility and Accountabilty. It was very moving to see how respectfully people could share their personal stories and listen to the stories of others while coming together to try to educate themselves and others on the topics at hand."
