The Reverend Dr. Robert Lawrence Civic Engagement Summit is an annual gathering sponsored by the Leduc Center. It is designed to strengthen the social fabric of our community, region, and Commonwealth through conversations and dialogues. Speakers engage the audience in thought-provoking discussions designed to improve the quality of life in our communities through a collective process. At a time when communities nationwide are troubled and traditional “solutions” no longer provide the needed relief, a new paradigm must be embraced in order to create true solutions to our communities’ current and future problems. That paradigm begins with a true understanding of what we consider our assets as well as reliance on our neighbors and collaboration with one another to build stronger communities from within. Please join us for a dialogue that makes a difference.
Last year’s Summit took place on Friday, April 15th. Our keynote speakers included David Campbell, Ph.D., Packey J. Dee Professor of American Democracy at the University of Notre Dame and Rev. Brenda Girton-Mitchell, J.D., Director of the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Education.
