The Civic Buzz meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Black Forest Inn Banquet Room, Nicollet Avenue S. at 26th St. W. in Minneapolis. We gather at 5:30. You can order drinks and food and we begin our meeting at 6:15 and end at 7:30. Each month we have a speaker followed by discussion. Each month will have a new topic/issue for discussion. Anyone interested in discussing pressing topics related to citizen engagement are invited. A discussion with the League of Women Voters 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. Civic Buzz is co-sponsored by Whittier Alliance.
No Civic Buzz in November. Mark your calendar now for Tuesday December 3rd for an important discussion on Dying with Dignity. Our speaker, Thaddeus Pope, JD, PhD, Director of the Health Law Institute and Professor of Law at Mitchell Hamline University School of Law is a world-renowned expert on legal issues affecting end-of-life medical care.
He has over 130 publications and is coauthor of The Right to Die: The Law of End-of-Life Decisionmaking. He works to calibrate the balance between individual liberty and public health in the context of end-of-life medical care and will discuss the Minnesota End of Life Option Act.
