(on various days)

More Info

The Cambridge Center for Adult Education has a long history as a beacon for learning and discussion on topics of import. Recognizing the current public need for greater understanding of issues of civic engagement and social justice, and affirming that contributing to a strong social fabric is a responsibility of educational institutions, the Cambridge Center proposes a unique opportunity for adults in our community to engage with each other in discussion of difficult and timely topics. It’s our hope to foster greater communication and clearer understanding among people from many backgrounds; because we believe that a connected, informed public is crucial to a just society. Conversations September 14 – Voting Rights and the Constitution While voting is seen as a fundamental right and duty of citizens, the years since the Voting Rights Act of 1965 have seen a dizzying array of legislation alleged to have the aim of disenfranchising a wide swath of American voters. Lend your voice to this conversation about the history of voter suppression, grassroots efforts to empower voters, and the policies that affect both. Moderated panel discussion and conversation with a reception to follow. Panelists:Elena LetonaExecutive Director, Neighbor to NeighborJohn StaufferProfessor, Harvard University November 16  – Resistance in Context Information TBA
