Members of the Schar School’s Democracy Lab living-learning community for first-year students attended a luncheon hosted by the Virginia Foundation for Research and Economic Education (Virginia FREE) last week at the Ritz-Carlton at Tysons, Virginia. In addition to hearing speakers discuss the latest in U.S. politics, the Lab members got to meet Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA).
