Lisa Kretz, assistant professor of philosophy, was one of the five panelists who shared ideas about how to promote understanding and effect social change. Robert Dion, the longtime chair of the Human Relations Commission, was the moderator for the evening’s discussion.

Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, a UE alum, also spoke at this event about support for a community free of discrimination.
