Settlement Project President, Frank Kaufmann spent March 16 – 20, 2023 in the San Francisco Bay Area speaking at several venues and occasions to launch Settlement Project work in the region. Much of the schedule and opportunity was made possible by ACCOR member and freedom activist, Michael Kellett and family.
On the evening of his arrival, Dr. Kaufmann spoke on US First Amendment rights to Bay Area leaders engaged in an 8-week course on the US Constitution hosted by ACCOR (Alameda County Constitution of Restoration). Click here to see the presentation on the First Amendment.
On the following evening, Dr. Kaufmann spoke to area youth and university students on “Diversity and the Elements of Conflict and Reconciliation,” addressing elements of what is typically called “DEI” with recommendations to meet issues with approaches better suited to mutual embrace, peace, harmony, and true human equality. This second evening was sponsored by the student group CARP (College Association for the Research of Principles). Click here to see the presentation on Diversity and Racial Harmony.
On Saturday morning, Dr. Kaufmann spoke on the topic “What Will It Take to Make America Whole.” As seen on the event flyer pictured above, topics covered in his keynote included:
