Kara is one of four panelists at the Charles F. Kettering Foundation’s “A Public Voice Program” at the National Press Club on May 5th. The event serves to connect policymakers, practitioners, and faculty of deliberative democracy to share how citizens are thinking about the question of "how should we spread prosperity and improve opportunity?"
In part this invitation stems from her classroom work in Soc270 (Social Problems) this past winter quarter where she convened deliberative discussion forums with her students on the above question. Kara’s TA’s Carter Merklinghaus and Michele Cadigan were also instrumental in helping the students in the class engage in this deliberation. Kara’s presentation on the panel will stem from these discussions in her Soc270 class.
