We live in uncertain and turbulent times, inheriting a world with uniquely complex challenges. Increasingly, people are expressing a powerful desire to reconnect with their communities, to be part of solving these problems, and to learn how to create meaningful change. Whether it be issues of sustainability, economic equity, or disparities in the education system- people are willing and ready to get involved in the communities they call home. So, where can you start? And what role can you play in leading the change you want to see in the world?

Join us for a special conversation with legendary community organizer Marshall Ganz, Senior Lecturer in Public Policy at Harvard University, and Melody Barnes, former Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council under President Obama. Learn how to inspire and mobilize communities to utilize resources and create long term change. Hear from the experts and engage in conversation with peers as eager as you to make change happen.
