The Current Issues Discussion Group meets the third Wednesday of every month to discuss a subject of interest selected at its last meeting. Topics range from cutting-edge world events to domestic policies currently in the news.
All participants have an opportunity to express their opinions, present facts, or just to listen, during the lively informal lightly-led discussions. Some participants attend regularly; others occasionally or when the topic is of particular interest to them.
Our next meeting will address deliberate and inadvertent manipulation of public opinion through internet giants and social media such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter.
The group meets at the Langston-Brown Senior Center 2121 N. Culpeper Street, corner of Lee Highway just west of Glebe.
Encore Learning members on the Current Issues Discussion Group email list receive reminders of the next topic in advance of each meeting. If you are not on the list and wish to be, please notify the office and also inform them if you are likely to attend the November meeting.
