The Empowering Change initiative features a wide-ranging series of free* public events following the September 2014 opening of the Library of Congress exhibition, The Civil Rights Act of 1964: The Long Road to Freedom, in Washington, D.C.  The programs and observances are designed to encourage reflection, dialogue, and action in civil rights and social change—using what was accomplished then as the foundation for asking What can I do now?

* The Presidents’ College symposium on Sunday, Sept. 14, has a fee for non-students. All other events in the Empowering Change series are free.
