Lunch Meeting at noon on Friday in the EPIC CoLab Space

Are you interested in thinking and talking about violent extremism? Are you curious about how different terrorist groups continue to attract members?

Welling Hall will be sharing about an exciting new opportunity backed by Facebook and the Department for Homeland Security that Earlhamites can get involved in! Plus, there will be free pizza.
