Engage Today: Bridging the Ballot and the Block

October 27, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

Engage Today: Bridging the Ballot and the Block is a half day conference designed to highlight local leaders activating voters on the ground, as well as students engaged in political activism on campus and beyond.

Wesleyan has a long history of providing opportunities to enhance the political education of their students through community engagement. Wesleyan’s Civic Action Plan underscores the goal to “prepare our students to engage in civic participation throughout their lives.” The elections of 2018 are a crucial moment for our country and the Jewett Center for Community Partnerships aims to bring community members together to discuss issues affecting our local electoral landscape.

Below you will find the conference schedule, information on our speakers, and a link to register.
