"Civil discourse sounds like it may be hard to achieve in America today as we speak and talk to one another: until Lara Schwartz challenges you to approach your fellow humans with “All Due Respect: Productive Discourse in Challenging Times”. The United States Marshals Museum and attendees to our Talks on Tap Speaker Series were delighted, intrigued and moved by Professor Schwartz. Schwartz is at once a scholar and prolific humorist while educating the populace on civil discourse. The Museum is looking forward to having her return!"
- Leslie Higgins, Director of Education, United States Marshals Museum
“Lara Schwartz is a dynamic speaker who works hard to tailor presentations to a particular audience and setting. We collaborated in mid-2018. She developed and delivered a substantive, informative, and interactive two-hour presentation to a diverse group of LGBTQ activists from across the globe. In addition to providing facts and figures, she facilitated lively conversations that kept participants engaged–and laughing! Through her attentiveness to detail, Lara manages to stimulate critical thinking while encouraging hope for a better tomorrow.”
