The Riverside County Library System presented a Public Conversation event, Back in the World: Adjusting to Life After War.
The event included a panel discussion about the challenges facing veterans as they return home from Iraq, Afghanistan, and other combat zones across the globe. As conflict in the region again escalates, this conversation is ever more timely.
Panelists will included:
- Congressman Mark Takano (D-CA), Member, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs House
- Jackie Kozich, 2nd Class Petty Officer, US Navy, UC Riverside graduate, participated in rescue of Capt. Phillips from Somali pirates
- Karyn Young-Lowe, MSW, Founder/CEO of LightHouse Social Service Centers for veterans, a nonprofit agency in Moreno Valley
This forum was moderated by David Glidden Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, UC Riverside and former California Humanities board member.
This program was one of a series of five Public Conversations organized by California Humanities, in partnership with the California State Library, the University of California Humanities Research Institute, hosted by partner public libraries.
