WELL-KNOWN AUTHOR DISCUSSES “THE IMPORTANCE OF CIVIC ENGAGEMENT”
Join Sam Daley-Harris at the County Library Thursday, April 13, 7 p.m.
Author Sam Daley-Harris will discuss the importance of civic engagement and finding a path for making a difference when he appears at the County Library in Westampton on Thursday, April 13 at 7 p.m.
Having an active voice in American democracy is a founding principle of our country, but often times navigating the opportunities to be more engaged as citizens can be daunting. During “We the People: The Importance of Civic Engagement,” Daley-Harris will address these issues and guide attendees around the pitfalls on the path to making a profound difference. Representatives from some of the organizations Daley-Harris has worked with also will be in attendance. Admission to this special library event is free, but registration is required.
Daley-Harris is the author of “Reclaiming Our Democracy: Healing the Break Between People and Government.” He also founded the anti-poverty lobby RESULTS in 1980, co-founded the Microcredit Summit Campaign in 1995, and founded the Center for Citizen Empowerment and Transformation (CCET) in 2012.
The County Library is located at 5 Pioneer Blvd. off Woodland Road in Westampton. To register for “We the People,” and for more information, visit www.bcls.lib.nj.us or call (609) 267-9660.
