October 27, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Reception at 6:00 p.m.
Please join us on Thursday, October 27th, for a timely dialogue with Dr. Ceasar McDowell, President of the Interaction Institute for Social Change, and Professor of the Practice of Community Development at MIT. Together we will examine the challenging but vital democratic endeavor of fostering inclusive, equitable, and just communities. As part of the discussion, we will also explore respectful and peaceful ways to address difficult issues. We look forward to a wide-ranging conversation on the great potential for unity within our communities. See you then!
"Structural inequality, increased demographic complexity, extreme power imbalances and a persistent belief in a hierarchy of human value have left the public believing that it’s incapable of working collectively to create a sustainable, just and equitable society. And so our work in Big Democracy is to communicate, demonstrate and create places of experimentation to show that it is possible for the public to come together and create peaceful ways to interact to address these issues in ways that lead to an improvement on the past." - Dr. Ceasar McDowell
