November Civic Buzz
LWVMpls Black Forest Inn Discussion Meeting
Free and Open to the Public
Tuesday, November 1, 2016
So, What is the State of the Mississippi River in the Metro?
How is the Mississippi? Is water pollution improving? Can I swim in it?
Our speaker will discuss the findings published in the new State of the River Report—improvements as well as concerns.
Our guest speaker will be Trevor Russell. Mr Russell has served as Friends of the Mississippi River Water Program Director since 2006. He has a degree in economics from the Colorado College, and has 16 years of experience in community organizing, environmental education, and environmental & public health advocacy. Prior to joining FMR, Trevor served as Land Use & Transportation Organizer for the Sierra Club North Star Chapter.

We gather at 5:30 in Black Forest Inn’s banquet room. You can order drinks and food and we begin our meeting at 6:15. Each month we have a speaker followed by discussion. Each month will have a new topic/issue for discussion.
All LWVMpls members are invited along with their friends and anyone interested in discussing pressing topics related to citizen engagement. Topics studied and discussed in the past year were the Voting Rights Act, Amending the U.S. Constitution, and Money in Politics, School Culture, Winning Campaigns, and Voter Turnout.
We would love to have you join us. A discussion with our organization means that all voices are heard and we take opinions seriously. In the end, we all learn something new and hopefully have a broader understanding of the issues. [Read more…]
