"I am very pleased to be involved with the Stevenson Center, which does a superb job of discussing issues of national and international importance in a thoughtful and informative way," Potter said. "The Stevenson Center is one of those groups that does exactly what it claims—it informs citizens, and gives them the tools to become better citizens."
Senator Adlai Stevenson remarked, "With the addition of Lee Hamilton and Trevor Potter to our Advisory Board we are further building our capacity to bring the public the best, most informative programming on the challenges and opportunities to democratic systems of government. We rely heavily on our boards to share their experience and wisdom in this regard, and we are grateful to have members like them who bring intellectual capacity, experience, and connections."
