With over 300 members in more than 65 countries, the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience offers unprecedented access to a range of sites and methodologies dedicated to connecting past struggles to today’s movements for human rights. To best share these resources, we offer three webinar series. Upcoming sessions are below. To view recordings of previous sessions, click here.
Conscience Matters Webinar Series
Conscience Matters brings together members, Coalition staff and special guests to probe pressing issues facing Sites of Conscience today and showcase innovative and effective strategies to help members energize their audiences and play a leading role in our global movement for memory.
As more public awareness is paid to the historic system of racism in the U.S., this session will consider what an effective truth and justice commission in America might look like? What lessons can be learned from similar processes in South Africa, Latin America, and elsewhere? In addition to reparations, what other transitional justice tools could support this process?
Webinar Shorts are weekly, 30- to 45-minute interactive sessions devoted to core elements of Sites of Conscience methodology, member profiles and tools to support self-care and creativity.
Voting is a fundamental act in a democratic culture.
This session will look at how museums can support ongoing voting in their communities and how they can support fair, transparent, and accountable tallying of votes.
2020 Global Meetings
One of the ways the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience inspires broad civic action on local human rights issues is through regional networks, which bring members within a region together to coordinate and elevate their individual efforts to remember common histories and address their legacies today.
Below is information regarding the 2020 Regional Meetings, which will be held virtually in light of the pandemic. Unless otherwise noted, all Sites of Conscience members are invited to join these meetings regardless of which region they reside. In some cases, where noted, the public is also invited to attend.
