    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    Chicago has a rich history of civil activism, from the Haymarket Riots to the protests at the 1968 Democratic National Convention all the way up to the present day, with immigration marches, teachers strikes and the Black Lives Matter movement. At this Conversation, we’ll explore the different generations of civil activists in Chicago and look at what the next generation will be fighting for.
