The Soul of Civility with Alexandra Hudson
March 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Village Square hosts “The Soul of Civility” with Alexandra O. Hudson and moderator Manu Meel on Zoom and Facebook Live. Hudson funds the challenges to today’s civility dire, she thinks they are not new — and they are most definitely not about being more polite. Join Village Square for this inspiringly heartfelt and beautifully pitched argument that civility is not a luxury: it is necessary for the survival and flourishing of humankind.
Alexandra O. Hudson is a writer, popular speaker, and the founder of Civic Renaissance, a publication and intellectual community dedicated to beauty, goodness and truth. She contributes to Fox News, CBS News, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, TIME Magazine, POLITICO Magazine, and Newsweek. She earned a master’s degree in public policy at the London School of Economics and is an adjunct professor at the Indiana University Lilly School of Philanthropy.
