01/12 - Civic Engagement in Louisiana

How civic-minded are Louisiana’s citizens and how can they become more involved?

Louisiana citizens’ spirit of civic involvement places the state 12th nationally for voter registration, but Louisiana falls to 37th in voter participation. While the “Occupy Wall Street” movement has made its presence known in Louisiana, their events around the state have been met with minimal attendance. And although one out of every two Louisiana adults gave of their time to their communities last year, Volunteering in America, ranked Louisiana 47th among the 50 states for volunteerism. So, how civic-minded are Louisiana’s citizens and how can they become more involved? Join Louisiana Public Square as it examines “Civic Engagement in Louisiana” airing Wednesday, January 25th at 7 p.m. on LPB HD. (Taping, Tuesday, January 24th at 7 p.m.)

Anything about civic engagement catches my attention. Before returning home two years ago, I was very much engaged in deliberative democracy activities; yet have not found anyone with whom to connect in Louisiana. I have used the National Issues Forum Model extensively and have sat on their national board. Interested in making Louisiana connections, especially around issues of education
