In partnership with the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, Arizona Humanities is excited to announce the launch of FRANK Talks. The goal of FRANK Talks is to inspire people to practice the skills of citizenship – to listen respectfully and engage thoughtfully with one another. Taking place in Arizona Libraries this summer, attendees can participate in face-to-face conversations on important issues that affect our communities. Topics can include: education, incarceration, civil rights, and more.
FRANK Talks are named in part to honor Lorraine W. Frank, the founding Executive Director of Arizona Humanities. During her tenure from 1973 to 1989, she elevated public discourse and understood that engaging communities in dialogue was critical to the life of our state.
