Get involved!

Two events on Thursday offer citizens the chance to share ideas and learn from elected officials how they are using our ideas to improve our community.

From 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. Mayor Kabat will host a "Coffee with Kabat" at the Southside Neighborhood Center, 1300 Sixth St. South. "Meet the mayor, learn about city business, and offer your thoughts and ideas on how to improve our city. Coffee will be provided."

Beginning at 6 p.m. the Sustainability Institute will host a Relience Think Tank at the La Crosse Public Library, 8th and Main. "Help us develop community projects that can focus in on community resilience here in La Crosse.  Join community leaders like Grow La Crosse and other organizations to develop projects based on the needs and ideas spun from the Resilience Symposium in November. If you were unable to attend, no problem! simply review and layout the ideas that came from the symposium and then allow time to build on those ideas."

Additionally, 

Driftless Voter Coalition is looking for people who would be willing to get training in May on helping people register to vote. You may also sign up to volunteer at upcoming events to make sure everyone eligible is registered and ready to vote in the August primary and November elections. "If you are interested in training and volunteering at events with us this summer and fall please send an email to info@everyonevote2018.org with your name, organization, and phone number.

Let's maybe not bomb Syria: Protest at the clocktower, 5 pm Thursday 4/12

Some local folks are throwing together an ad hoc protest opposing bombing Syria.  Anyone who thinks bombing Syria is a bad idea right now is invited, regardless of other political opinions or affiliations.  It'll be at the UWL Clocktower at 5 on Thursday, April 12th (sorry for the short notice, but events are moving fast).
