Outreach Program wins APA/PDC Prize!

The Rethink Program has been awarded the 2015 APA/PDC Prize! Rethink was started by graduate students in Columbia University’s Department of Philosophy in 2013 and now works with faculty and graduate students from several New York City area universities as well as local community organizations to bring philosophy to two underserved populations: Court-involved youth and victims of domestic violence. Rethink aims to empower its participants through development of critical thinking skills and philosophical discussion of topics such as authority, punishment, testimony, racism, sexism,  and equality.

More information about Rethink’s work can be found in this interview with its co-founders, John Fantuzzo, Robbie Kubala, and Yoni Pasternak.
