      A series of bi-weekly co-curricular lectures, panel discussions and workshops that will focus on themes of democratic values, systems, and structures. We welcome faculty, staff, and students from all disciplines to present on topics relevant to democratic participation, founding documents, social movements, the idea of the commons, student civic development and participation, the role of journalism and media in a democracy, “fake news”, how to organize for social change, and more!

      All Fall 2018 events will be held in the Mary Idema Pew Library Multipurpose Room on Wednesdays at 6pm.

      All events are LIB 100/201 approved and will have pizza provided.

      This week's topic: what is gerrymandering? Does your vote count? Should you care? Experts from the GVSU Dept. of Mathematics and Political Science, along with a representative from Voters Not Politicians will discuss Proposal 2.
