This discussion group welcomes news addicts, those who want to learn more about today’s news and those who want to share news items – troubling and exciting – which cover the world, the United States, Florida and the local area. Are there ways to make changes needed? How does society move forward for a better world? Diverse points of view are encouraged and civil discourse is the rule of the day.  Each session starts with a current news discussion and analysis and then a relevant research topic is presented for the group to consider. The discussions are led by Pat Renfroe, who has led similar discussions at the JCC campus for the past several year. LET’S TALK!
