How do we arrive at unbiased and well-informed opinions about issues?  The process of critical thinking can guide us to better decisions in every day life.  In the first of four sessions, we will examine and practice this method of clearer analysis.  Using the film as a starting point, we will examine how critical thinking is applied to jury deliberations.  Presented by Norm Isaacson, Valerie Lucznikowska and Roger Moss.

Join us for a screening of the PBS Frontline documentary Chasing Heroin.  It is a searing, two-hour investigation placing America’s heroin crisis in a fresh and provocative light — telling the stories of individual addicts, but also illuminating the epidemic’s years-in-the-making social context, deeply examining shifts in U.S. drug policy, and exploring what happens when addiction is treated like a public health issue, not a crime.  Annie Colonna of Warwick Valley Prevention Coalition will host this event.
