Broward College Village Square will host the second Dinner at the Square in its series of non-partisan debates featuring guest speakers discussing their views on various issues facing the community. The February dinner will focus on the topic, “No Second Chance: Does Florida Over-Criminalize Juvenile Offenders?”
