Americans are now less likely to belong to groups that ask of their communities, “What should we do?” This decline weakens our society and threatens our democracy. Tufts University professor and author Peter Levine reflects on how we can reverse the trend and revive civic life.

This event is hosted by the Norwich Public Library and the Norwich Historical Society.
