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.

Created with Dr. Yetkin Borlu's Social Movements course, community leaders from the Richmond region will gather together to discuss what makes Richmond a distinct place regarding activism around community history preservation, youth, and community organizing.
