Concerns about state of democracy in U.S. expressed at Notre Dame forum

This week, [Notre Dame] is hosting its inaugural Global Democracy Conference. Serious concerns were expressed at a panel discussion on the state of democracy in the U.S. “I fear that we are going to rip apart as a country because so many of the things that used to unify Americans, no longer do,” said Notre Dame’s David Campbell. “Democrats usually have more elaborate systems about this, but the Trump campaign has also been mobilizing 100,000 election observers,” explained Notre Dame’s Christina Wolbrecht.

Two new murals completed at Foundry Field in South Bend

Notre Dame Center for Social Concerns Assistant Director Mike Hebbeler said, "We have such a rich history here in South Bend. Some of our stories get told prominently, others not so much. So these murals of Uncle Bill's Softball team and Seabe Gavin take stories that are, perhaps on the periphery, and really put them as central stories to our town's history and we celebrate their contributions."
