More about the Lawrence Lecture
The Lawrence Lecture was established in 2016 through an anonymous gift in honor of Reverend Dr. Robert Lawrence, who served the SouthCoast region as a religious and civic leader for more than 60 years. After Lawrence’s death in October 2018, the Lectures continues to spread his passion for civic engagement and thoughtful dialogue. The first three lectures featured a performance of NPR’s The Moth; author Mitch Albom; and David Hogg and Jaclyn Corin – survivors of the Parkland school shooting and gun safety advocates.
