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.

Spirituality has been a source of support and sustaining power for social movements and social justice work throughout history. This panel will consider the broader connection between spirituality and community change, considering advocacy, organizing and other forms of faith based work at both the national and regional levels. The panel features individuals deeply involved in social justice work in the Richmond community who will share their own reflections regarding the impact of spirituality on our local context.
