by Staff, Opeilka Auburn News

A community conversation to learn more about how Alabama residents engage in important civic activities such as voting, volunteering and interacting with neighbors will take place at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 14, in the Coleman Fellowship Hall of Auburn First Baptist Church. The event is free and refreshments will be provided. The Alabama Civic Health Index, or ACHI, released by David Mathews Center for Civic Life, University of AlabamaÕs New College, Auburn UniversityÕs College of Liberal Arts and the National Conference on Citizenship, shows how Alabama residents are involved in the types of civic activities linked to the economic and personal health of individuals and communities. Following an overview of the ACHI, a panel of respondents from the League of Women Voters of East Alabama and the Department of Political Science at Auburn University will offer their reactions. Panelists include Kristen De La Fuente, president of the League of Women Voters of East Alabama; Paul Harris, Associate Director of the Auburn University Honors College; Bridgett King, Assistant Professor of Political Science; and Auburn student Aly Bolin, a senior majoring in political science and minoring in community and civic engagement. ~1@BODYURL[id=114jbcurl1293]@
