Veterans, active service members, and civilians are invited to contribute to the “Examining Military Service From the Margins” four-week discussion series. Facilitated by pairs of Discussion Leaders, each week in the series will use guiding questions, and a set of core-shared resources like oral histories and films, to better understand how race, class, gender, sexuality, religion, and other factors have caused the military service of some individuals to be devalued or limited in some capacity. Minneapolis Sessions: - Session 1: April 3 @ 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. - Introduction/What motivates people to serve? - Session 2: April 17 @ 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. - How has the military service of certain populations been hidden devalued, limited, or discriminated against? - Session 3: April 24 @ 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. ONLINE - How has the military worked to become more inclusive, and why? - Session 4: May 1 @ 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. - How is military service valued differently?
