The Need for Courage in a Time of Fear

Since its launch at the RI State House in February, Courageous RI, a Department of Homeland Security funded initiative has been holding regular online sessions – part informational, part conversational – using media literacy, deep listening, and civil conversation to reduce the hate that can lead to extremist violence. Find out what they’ve been teaching and learning during these Courageous Conversations, why courage is such an important attribute to embrace now, and plans for the next two programs of this initiative.

Mother of two extraordinary daughters, and grandmother of four above average grandchildren, and longtime active member of First U, Pam Steager serves as co-host for Courageous Conversations and also as Director of Public Engagement for Courageous RI. Following a career in prevention and education, since 1999 she has been a senior presenter, writer, and researcher with the Media Education Lab at URI, but hopes to swap trying to save the world for reading novels, gardening, and travel in the near future.
