[SDCPJ] Fri 3/21 "Creating a Culture of Civility"

This sounds like an interesting (free!) event for the public to attend at USD this Friday morning. Below is a link with info and to register, though it seems on-site registration might okay as well.

An informed and engaged public is important!

In Peace,
Mariah
