Carolyn J. Lukensmeyer, PhD, executive director of the National Institute for Civil Discourse, will speak at the Casas Adobes Forum Sunday, January 8th, the sixth anniversary of the shooting of U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and 18 others. “Her topic: “Rebuilding Public Trust: Civility, Respect and Engagement.” The non-partisan Institute, based at U of A, was created by Tucsonans in the aftermath of the shooting to promote healthy and civil public debate. Dr. Lukensmeyer previously served as founder and president of AmericaSpeaks, which promoted initiatives to engage citizens and community leaders in the development of innovative public policy strategies. The Forum will meet in McNear Hall from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.”
