March 19: “Neighborhood’s New Life” w/ Dr. Kenneth Laundra

The east side Torrence Park neighborhood is being revitalized – from the inside out. Dr. Kenneth Laundra, sociology professor at Millikin University, will explain how the neighborhood’s residents are taking ownership of the public space there. Millikin students play an active role with their physical labor as community volunteers but by doing community surveys, analyzing data and presenting the project locally. The Social Action Committee is leading the service.
