This past weekend, the SpeakFirst team attended the Barkley Forum for Debate, Deliberation, and Dialogue hosted by Emory University. Our Sophomore Lincoln Douglas debater Donovan Frazier was invited. It was an honor for Speakfirst to be invited to the 66th annual Forum, where Atlanta Mayor Ms. Keisha Lance Bottoms was in attendance!
This past weekend, GW Debaters Olivia Dugan, Sean O'Neil, and Itiel Wainer participated in the One Person, No Vote Deliberations hosted by the Barkley Forum for Debate, Deliberation, and Dialogue, Emory University's Center for Civic and Community Engagement, and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights (NCCHR). On the first day the team attended a tour of the NCCHR, and then presented their proposal for protecting voting rights in the public atrium of the NCCHR. On the second day, the team presented a reflective response at Emory University, which incorporated the ideas of other universities. The team received the award for Best Researched Proposal.

Congratulations to our team for their outstanding performance! We couldn't be prouder of their commitment to research and respectful discourse!

We’ve recently completed an enjoyable debate training program for SPANX as part of our Debate Across the Enterprise (DATE) initiative. Participants showcased their skills in an exhibition debate, held at Emory University School of Law and had the honor of being judged by representatives from the Barkley Forum for Debate, Deliberation, and Dialogue, the Atlanta Urban Debate League, SpeakFirst Impact America, and Emory University. If your organization would benefit from learning to distill challenging issues to their essential parts and developing productive disagreement skills to drive innovation and growth, send us a message!
Guns are viewed by many people as a symbol of American independence. However, the March for Our Lives protests and the increasing number of mass shooting have shown us that gun control is a conversation we must engage in. Please join the Emory Conversation Project for our last dialogue of the year on April 19th at 7pm
