Forward: A Civil Discussion on Wisconsin’s Present and Future

As part of a new interdisciplinary initiative of the American Democracy Project, a discussion will be held on Wednesday, April 4, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. in Reeve 227.

The plan is to spend most of the time listening to each other as participants discuss three questions:
-How does my life/my major/my work intersect with state policies and state politics?
-What is my impression about the state of the state and its people?
-What can I do to engage with others and make a positive difference in the state?
People will sit at round tables with about six or seven others, including a student facilitator and a faculty/staff facilitator. There will be a chance to share ideas and thoughts with the broader group as well. Volunteer groups and community members are encouraged to join.
The event is envisioned as a way to get people from multiple disciplines and colleges learning more about how politics intersect with what we all do, and how what we all do intersect with politics, in a nonpartisan and civil way.
If you have a class that you would like to get involved in the Forward Discussion or if you would like to act as one of the facilitators or just join in, please contact David Siemers (siemers@uwosh.edu, 424-0435) or Carleen Vandezande (vandezac@uwosh.edu, 424-3190).
