“This is an age of epic political turbulence in America. Old hierarchies and institutions are collapsing. All the “givens” of civic life are no longer given. Now, citizens across the country and across the political spectrum are reclaiming power…Are you ready?”

Eric Liu, CEO of Citizen University; Director of the Aspen Institute Citizenship and American Identity Program; Former Deputy Domestic Policy Adviser under President William Jefferson Clinton

People across the political spectrum have long felt frustrated, powerless, and disenfranchised. Year after year we’ve seen citizens feel ignored by those in power, convinced that their voices would remain unheard. And yet, amidst the political turmoil, we’re also witnessing citizens reclaim power from the ground up. There’s a resurgence of civic energy as Americans organize, use new platforms of influence, and demand to be heard.

So, what does it really take to create meaningful change? And if you want to make change in the world, do you know how? On Friday, April 28th, hear from bestselling author  Eric Liu as he shares his thoughts on the evolving influence of civic power, the new role of the citizen, and how to make change happen.

Eric Liu is an author, educator, and civic entrepreneur. He is the Founder and CEO of Citizen University, which teaches the art of powerful citizenship through a portfolio of national programs. His books include the national bestsellers The Gardens of Democracy, The True Patriot, and You’re More Powerful Than You Think: A Citizen’s Guide to Making Change Happen.

Join the conversation on April 28th to better understand your own power and how to be a change agent! Register here!

*Doors open at 12:00PM

As an added bonus, the first fifty guests who arrive will receive a FREE copy of Eric Liu’s newest book You’re More Powerful Than You Think: A Citizen’s Guide to Making Change Happen.
