The Hon. Lawrence L. Webb, a member of the Falls Church, Va., school board, will speak on “Peace and Justice: Finding Common Ground,” at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 7, in Cole Hall at Bridgewater College.

Webb is a senior recruiter with Bowie State University in Maryland.

Appointed by Governors Mark Warner and Tim Kaine, Webb has served two terms on the Virginia Department of Correctional Education board. He has served on the Equality Virginia board of directors since 2009 and chairs Equality Virginia Advocates, the political arm of the organization. He recently was appointed to the Virginia Advisory Committee for Juvenile Justice and Prevention by Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
