Description

Come join the DC Chapter of the Association of Tufts Alumnae, Tufts Women DC, for an interactive discussion on civic engagement Thursday, October 19th, at 6:30pm.
Looking for ways to get more civically engaged and connected in these divided times? Want to brainstorm with other women in the Tufts community? Join us for this program, which will feature Jen McAndrew, Director of Communications & Strategy, Tisch College at Tufts University.

After the 2016 election, Peter Levine, an associate dean for research at the Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts and leading scholar on civic engagement in America, developed a flow chart called “How to Respond” that was widely shared among individuals and groups seeking to explore their own pathways to civic and political engagement. Using this chart as a jumping off point, and also considering other ideas, tools and approaches, we will discuss ways that we can be more involved in our communities, our political systems and our world. This is a non-partisan, interactive and fun event; no experience is required, just an open mind!
Afterward, attendees will have the opportunity to sign up for volunteer opportunities in the DC metro area if they so choose to. 
Refreshments will be provided.
