On the evening of Thursday, September 9th, FAIR Southwest Pennsylvania had its first ever online event.  While the event was the first of what will be many events, it started off strong.  A diverse crowd from Pittsburgh and beyond joined the Zoom event with FAIR Southwest Pennsylvania chapter leaders, FAIR chapter network leaders, and special guest Ian Rowe, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and member of the FAIR board of advisors.

At the meeting, attendees learned about FAIR’s pro-human values, and what services FAIR has to offer, such as legal aid, FAIR Transparency, the FAIRstory curriculum, advocacy tools, advocacy support, diversity training resources, and more.  Then, they were able to engage with Ian Rowe and discuss how to effectively run for school boards on a unifying message of equality of opportunity, individual dignity, and common humanity.  After a lively and positive discussion, those in attendance learned about how they could get involved, along with the upcoming first book club event featuring Coddling of the American Mind by Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt.  Finally, they were able to ask questions of the chapter leaders.

We are thrilled that our first FAIR Southwest Pennsylvania event provided such a positive environment for sharing and promoting constructive approaches and pro-human values. We wish to thank attendees for contributing, and we hope to see you all at our next event.
