Civil Discussions & Civic Engagement
Named for two well known Fayette residents, William (Bill) Steinem and Robert (Doc) Nyce, this series brings up topics of civic importance for civil discussion. Scholars inform us, historians provide perspective, and community members provide the discussion, exploring the impact on our community.
Bill and Doc may have represented opposite ends of the political spectrum on many issues, but they shared respect for each other and willingness to work together in support of their many shared values. Their generosity and support of our community are the model and inspiration for this series initiated in the 2013/2014 season.
