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.

What is the future and what are the stories of juvenile justice in Virginia? Valerie Slater, a powerful advocate for youth rights, will join us for this Brown Bag discussion. As the Executive Director for RISE for Youth Coalition, Valerie Slater has worked to protect the rights of children in community, residential and juvenile justice facilities throughout the Commonwealth.
