EngageICT

At a time when citizens and voters face monumental choices on issues that will define our future, there is a great need for broader understanding of how what happens at the polls affects you. That's why KMUW launched Engage ICT: Democracy on Tap.

Come find out why you should care about the issues in our city, state and nation.

The next Engage ICT event is on Tuesday, February 21 at Distillery 244 | 244 N. Mosley from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. KMUW is bringing together city and county officials to discuss civic engagement on the local level. Learn what the city and county actually do and how to get involved.

These monthly gatherings are held at different venues each month and will feature authoritative panelists and conversations on issues that touch your daily life.

Engage ICT is sponsored by VolunteerKansas.org.
