Law and Democracy Lecture
Submitted By William H. Hanson, J.D.
Chabot College will kick off its International Democracy Day celebrations with its Second Annual Law and Democracy Day lecture by Alameda County Supervisor Richard Valle, "Why Civic Engagement Matters: Reclaiming Lives and Sustainable Development," on September 13th.
Supervisor Valle's lecture is the second in Chabot College's new Law and Democracy Lecture Series. The United Nations has designated September 15th as the International Democracy Day, and the annual lecture is in observance of this day.
One of Chabot's college-wide learning goals is civic responsibility. A primary goal of the Law and Democracy Lecture Series is to expose students and the broader community to a wide range of ideas and policy issues that impact our communities.
Supervisor Valle's service and commitment to the community extends over 32 years as a business owner and community leader, a former council member for the City of Union City, a Vietnam veteran, and a Chabot College Alum. Having grown up in Union City, Supervisor Valle truly understands the needs of our local community, and the importance of providing opportunities for our youth and college students within Southern Alameda County. A community leader that creates and implements programs and services for underrepresented populations in our local cities, Supervisor Valle is a mentor that knows the critical role education plays in sustaining our economy and our democratic processes.
The lecture series is sponsored by the Chabot College Social Sciences Division, Associated Students of Chabot College, and the Office of the President. For information, please visit the website at www.chabotcollege.edu/SocialSciences.
