Richmond Home

Every year, the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement invites community partners of the University of Richmond to gather for food (when we can meet in person), fellowship, and shared learning.

On Wednesday, May 5, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., join us for a virtual gathering focused on the four tools for civic action, Understanding Our Democracy, Collective Self-Care, Discovery, and Difficult Conversations, discussed during RVA Engage's Tools for Civic Action in Our Democracy NOW series.

We'll learn from community leaders and explore together how civic tools can inform our collective work to impact positive change in our region. This will be a Zoom meeting with opportunity for conversation.
