ICPR Executive Director, Sarah Brune, talks civic engagement and #ICPRSummit16 with Dometi Pongo and Perri Small on WVON.
Thursday, I’ll be a part of discussion on the role millennials play in the political process. The Illinois Campaign for Political Reform’s 2nd annual Summit for Action and Civic Reform kicks off at 10am.
The panel I’m moderating hones in on how to engage voters aged 18-34. Voters on both sides of the aisle are less than enthused about the names on the ballot and have become more cynical about the political process in general – arguably for good reason. We hope to unpack that and analyze other leanings of the youngest generation to enter the political process at Columbia College, Thursday (9/15) at 11:30am.
