Public Programs

Upcoming Programs

The Institute’s public programs welcome elected officials and community leaders to create a dialogue around critical issues facing our nation. In 2017, the Institute’s programs are focusing on how citizens and elected officials can create change at the local, state, and federal levels. How do we create social, political, and economic change in our communities? What avenues do U.S. Senators and other elected officials have? How do the two intersect?
