LT Pick Free

These free community discussions will take place at The Helena Avenue Theater, in conjunction with a live theater performance called “Grounded” by Raven’s Feather Productions (RFP). Both symposia involve a combination of presentation and discussion and will be structured in ways that allow for free-flowing conversation and questions.
On Feb. 20, the topic is "The Military Experience & Culture" featuring Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Elizabeth Barrs, instructor of Veteran's Studies at Missoula College & Humanities Montana speaker.
On Feb. 27, “The Ethics of War & Autonomous Warfare” will be discussed by Major Hunter Cantrell, an active duty member of the U.S. Army and assistant professor of philosophy at U.S. Military Academy West Point.
People of all ages and backgrounds are invited to participate. Community members do not need to see the live performance of “Grounded.”
