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.

This week's CCE Brown Bag speakers will discuss Art180's Youth Self Advocacy Through Art program and most recent exhibition, My Reality, which shared the perspectives of youth most impacted by the juvenile justice system in Richmond. They will also reflect on art's vital role to inspire conversation and change, and how those who are interested in local juvenile justice reform campaigns can get involved. Free pizza will be provided.
