Civic Lions – Nov. 6, 2017 @ noon

Left, right. Blue, red. Liberal, conservative. The United States of America is no longer so united. Rather than giving Americans the freedom to engage in the pursuit of happiness, the political system instead has made us angry and divided.

Sacrificing for future generations has always been part of the American character. What if the country renewed its commitment to that philosophy?

The Constitution’s Preamble states that its purpose is to “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.” Will either of the two parties become the “posterity party”? If not, could a new Posterity Party arise? Future generations may depend on it.


Come hear Arkansas Freelance Journalist/Columnist, Steve Brawner, share his thoughts about the current state of politics in America.


When: Today, Monday, November 6, 2017 at noon


Where: Latture Conference Center


What: Mr Steve Brawner’s presentation is part of the UAFS American Democracy Project’s Civic Lion Series


Who: Mr. Steve Brawner will be sharing his thoughts on the state of politics in America with our students and other members of our campus community
