The flood of 2008 affected more than buildings in Cedar Rapids; it uncovered strengths and challenges in community networks and relationships. Strengthening those relationships – known as “social capital” – can lead to wide-ranging community-wide benefits. Join The Gazette and KCRG-TV9 for Learning Forward: A Community Forum on Social Capital, moderated by KCRG-TV9's Bruce Aune, for a public reflection on what we've learned about ourselves and applying those lessons to build a stronger Cedar Rapids. Panelists will include community representatives along with author Kevin Adler who studied the flood's effects on Cedar Rapidians' sense of community. Can't make it to the forum? Watch it live on KCRG 9.2 starting at 6pm.
