Stepping Forward with Rich Harwood
September 25, 2019Free
Rich Harwood, President and Founder of the Harwood Institute for Public Innovation and author of the new book “Stepping Forward: A Positive Practical Path to Transform Our Communities and Our Lives” is coming to Hartsville! Mark your calendars for Wednesday, September 25, at 7pm in the Watson Theater in the Elizabeth Boatwright Coker Performing Arts Center at Coker University and join Harwood in a discussion of how we can put our local communities and our country on a more hopeful path.
Harwood’s Stepping Forward shows us how to: *turn outward to see and hear each other again and afford every person human dignity, *rediscover what we share in common by focusing on our shared aspirations, even amid our real differences, *recognize we must tap into our innate capabilities to produce meaningful change, *forge a new shared responsibility to marshal community resources to solve problems and harness people’s yearning for genuine engagement, *create a new can-do narrative by focusing on civic parables that remind us that we can be actors, shapers, and builders of our shared lives. Harwood believes in order to get the country moving in a better direction, these efforts must start in our local communities. Then we can restore our can-do spirit and faith in ourselves.
This event is sponsored by the Byerly Foundation and is free and open to the public. More information about Stepping Forward can be found at steppingforwardbook.org.
