The panel also will include journalist Dennis Dimick from National Geographic magazine and St. Mary’s University professor David Opp.
Moderator will be Fred de Sam Lazaro, director of the UnderTold Stories Project at St. Mary’s. He said: “We hope to bring home the relevance to our community – students in particular – of what might seem like a distant issue.”

It’s sponsored by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, National Geographic, Hendrickson Institute for Ethical Leadership, St. Mary’s University, PBS “NewsHour,” UnderTold Stories and the Minnesota International Center.
