We are excited to announce an upcoming workshop, presented in partnership with Wabash College! On November 29th, from 5:00pm to 8:00pm, we will be hosting a Civic Discourse Workshop at the Greene County Community Event Center. Members of the Wabash Democracy & Public Discourse Initiative will facilitate this workshop. Its purpose is to develop skills necessary for productive public discussion on contentious issues. The workshop will lead participants through an exercise to foster discussion focused on Greene County’s future growth and development. Admission is free, and a light dinner will be provided. Space is limited – RSVP by calling (812) 659-3142 or emailing us at email@example.com today!
