Many Daytonians live out the idea “Think Globally, Act Locally,” and DCOWA is providing them with a new platform to share their experiences. This new series is an opportunity to meet people over your brew of choice, make new friends, and learn something new about Dayton’s international connections. The talks are short and informal and there will be plenty of time for networking as well.
This month will feature Bridget Federspiel, who is just back from a three-month trip to Vietnam on a Fulbright Scholarship, where she spent time collecting the voices of veterans who fought on the Vietnamese side of the war. Bridget has spent the last 14 years working with her students at Stivers School for the Arts to collect US veterans’ stories for the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project. Bridget is a teacher and the coordinator for the Dayton Junior Council on World Affairs
