This year’s theme is “The Critical Importance of Education, Healthcare, and Jobs for All.” The registration form can be found on the IBLC’s Website, at Http://indianahousedemocrats.org/docs/iblc20130906symposium_registration_form.pdf. One can also register in person on the morning of the symposium.
“We will be exploring areas that dramatically affect the entire state, but, in particular, the African-American community,” explained State Sen. Lonnie Randolph (D-East Chicago), who chairs the IBLC. “Those specific areas are children’s issues, economic development, pre-school through 12th grade (P-12) education, higher education, and health. In addition, we will hold a special youth forum to talk about college preparedness, job skills, and internships as well as share explanations about the legislative process.”
