Westmont Center for Dialogue & Deliberation Upcoming Conversations
Creatively facing challenges - together.
We're responding to the complexities of COVID-19 by choosing to pursue alternatives to indoor, in-person meeting for the fall of 2020. We've just hosted a virtual conversation amongst Westmont faculty, staff, students, and community members discussing Proposition 25 on the November ballot in California. Student research and interviews with stakeholders in Santa Barbara fueled the issue advisory we compiled for deliberation.
In addition to the forum we held, we're continuing our involvement in Santa Barbara's Eastside neighborhood. We've been invited by a a team of numerous stakeholders - service providers, people experiencing homelessness, residents, business owners, and others - to facilitate a discussion of their diverse concerns to move forward with their aligned purpose toward effective, timely solutions for homelessness in their neighborhood.
