The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) hosts weekly Brown Bag discussions, open to members of the campus and the community, from 12:30–1:25p.m. on most Fridays during the academic year. Each week, a speaker or small panel leads a presentation on a provocative social issue, then opens up the floor for discussion. Free pizza will be provided.

Messaging is a critical piece of the American election cycle — but what is the message behind the message? Join us for a Brown Bag discussion on how political rhetoric is crafted and used on the campaign trail. Our panel will include Will Ritter, co-founder of Richmond-based media firm POOLHOUSE, and Dr. Ernest McGowen from the Department of Political Science. The panel discussion will kick off at 12:30 in THC 305. Free pizza is provided. 

Sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement, UR College Democrats, and the Politics Club, with Forum @ the Forum.
