"Fighting for Common Ground" with Olympia Snowe
Thursday, December 12, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
In this timely call to action, Senator Olympia Snowe explores the roots of her belief in principled policy-making and bipartisan compromise. A leading moderate with a reputation for crossing the aisle, she will propose solutions for bridging the partisan divide in Washington, most notably through a citizens’ movement to hold elected officials accountable. Senator Snowe recounts how the tragedies and triumphs of her personal story helped shape her political approach. This event is in partnership with the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation, Library, and Museum.
When & Where
The Hauenstein Center at Grand Valley State University
Inspired by Ralph Hauenstein, we seek to provide a platform for emerging leaders in all three major sectors of public life – business, government, and nonprofit. We promote civic engagement that (1) honors the Founders’ vision of a constitutional republic; (2) builds on existing democratic institutions that promote justice, freedom, opportunity, sustainable prosperity, and the rule of law; and (3) envisions the possibilities for creating better communities.
