"This is not an agenda that calls for complacency, inaction, or timorousness. In fact, without bold and innovative ideas to tackle these problems our nation will inevitably drift and then decline, and trust in the public sphere will surely erode even further."
Through our Speaker Series, SANDSTONE CONNECTS, we present influential speakers to expound upon the social issues that affect our world and motivate the community to become involved individually.
In presenting such invigorating and prestigious speakers, we present a series of community oriented events that will inspire us all to rethink, re-energize and re-engage with our families, our colleagues and our world at large. By encouraging critical thought and better understanding, we hope to motivate active social involvement.
