State Attorney General Office holding civic event at IUPUC

The Indiana Attorney General’s Office is inviting you to a “round-table discussion and brainstorming session” Tuesday in Columbus.

The goal, say organizers, is to enhance citizens’ involvement in their communities. The program, called “Value Your Voice: Redefining Indiana,” takes place from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Summerville Room of Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller is scheduled to speak about the 2015 Indiana Civic Health Report, a study of citizen involvement in community issues. From there, organizers say that the audience will break into small groups. Wabash College students from the Wabash Democracy and Public Discourse Initiative will lead participants in round-table conversations about Indiana’s civic health culminating in recommendations to the whole audience.

Organizers say that this event is geared toward college-age “millennials,” though the event is open to all ages. The program is free but participants are asked to register online at or by calling (317) 234-7127.

This program is being hosted by IUPUC and Professor Ryan Neville-Shepard. This nonpartisan, nonpolitical program is sponsored by the Indiana Attorney General’s Office and Wabash College.
