Democracy: A Community Conversation – Thursday, April 20 at 7 p.m.

The Southworth Library will host a Community Conversation on Democracy on Thursday, April 20 at 7 p.m. with Professor David Flaten, (TC3- Political Science). It will include a guided discussion of short essays as well as time to reflect on our new exhibit “Rural Voices on the Path to Women’s Rights”.  Join us for this open discussion of democracy and our rights, responsibilities and future.

The Community Conversation is also funded with support from Humanities New York.
