Political Open Mic: Making Your Vote Count

Presented with Bridge the City

Event Details:

The 2020 United States presidential election is almost a year away. Join NEWaukee and Bridge the City as we discuss ways we can work together to ensure every vote counts, for all elections locally and nationally. Our Political Open Mic will give residents, elected officials, nonprofit leaders, and the business community a platform to share solutions to the challenges our communities face around voting.

We hope to foster respect and positivity between attendees and speakers to create civic dialogue and develop attitudes focused on productive solutions rather than ideological tribes. Come with an open mind and be ready to share your voice!
