America’s robust civic life has been one of its most defining characteristics. Alexis de Tocqueville, a French aristocrat who studied America in the early 1830s, was astounded by people’s inclination to form clubs and societies of every variety. These kinds of groups formed our civil society and knit our communities together.
Recent surveys of our nation’s civic life indicate that some areas of the country are suffering from a complete breakdown of civil society and community. Our social fabric is fraying and giving way to social alienation. These issues deserves our attention.
During this one-day event, we will explore
- How the human person is created for community
- Why civil society is so important to the health of our social fabric
- Why some communities began to break down
- How we can begin to restore and reinvigorate our communities
