La Crosse, WI (WXOW) – The right to weigh in on who represents us stands at the heart of the American experience, but citizens are becoming increasingly wary of elections. That’s why a local group wants to hash it all out over lunch.
The Interfaith Leaders Coalition brings its Community Conversations series back for a fourth season with a discussion led by UW-La Crosse Political Science professor Anthony Chergosky. Taking a fact-based approach, Chergosky said it won’t be biased toward Democrats or Republicans. He said he wants to provide information and help people talk about their concerns.
Community Conversations take place at English Lutheran Church in La Crosse the third Wednesday of each month. It is free to attend from 12 noon to 1 pm and includes lunch. They accept a free-will donation to cover the cost of food. You can register by clicking here.
