Democratic Dialogue Speaker Series: In this virtual presentation by former Congressman Dennis Ross, learn about your civic duties as an American citizen as he walks us through the importance of being active in local politics.
Ross is the director of the American Center for Political Leadership (ACPL) at Southeastern University. In October 2018, the university announced the launch of the bipartisan center, which houses key research activities, academic programs, courses, workshops, and resources. The ACPL works to prepare the next generation of political leaders and passionate citizens to promote traditional American values and individual freedoms with civility, authenticity, respect and decorum in government and society.
Ross served as a Florida State Representative from 2008–2018. As a fourth-term U.S. Congressman, he served as a Senior Deputy Majority Whip and on the Committee of Financial Services and on the Committee of Oversight and Government Reform.
