Community members across Wisconsin are invited to participate in Uniting for Wisconsin’s Civic Health, a non-partisan program led by Urban Rural Action, the UW-Madison Center for Community and Nonprofit Studies and the Civic Health of Wisconsin Initiative, to engage and strengthen Wisconsin’s civic health.
Through this program, Wisconsinites will have the chance to meet and work together to build skills for connecting across differences, as well as to explore common issues and potential solutions in our communities. Wisconsinites from across Wisconsin can apply to participate in a virtual workshop on May 31, 2023. Residents of Columbia County, Jefferson County, Dane County and Dodge County can apply to participate in a full-day workshop on June 10, 2023, in or near Madison.
Apply here by the May 15th deadline! Space is limited!
“Civic health” reflects the degree to which citizens participate in their communities, from local and state governance to interactions with friends or family. Civic health also relates to the overall well-being of neighborhoods, communities, states, and the nation. Connecting across differences and building skills for working together to address community issues and challenges has never been more needed or important, in a recent era of polarization, division, and isolation.
All participants are sure to gain skills and tools and deepen their commitment to contribute to more connected and supported local communities, and a more civically healthy Wisconsin. Past participants have used this program as a professional development opportunity. Please reach out to email@example.com if you would like a letter of support to present to your employer.
This project is made possible by the generous support of the Schlecht Family Foundation.
