Share this post

The Indiana Black Legislative Caucus will feature a wide range of subjects at the 2013 Annual Legislative Symposium, being held tomorrow [[Friday, Sept. 6]] on the campus of Indiana University Northwest in Gary. Former Merrillville Community School Corporation superintendent Dr. Tony Lux, and Group Director for the National Conference of State Legislatures’ Health Program Martha King will be the featured keynote speakers.  The cost of the symposium is $50 per person. Scholarships for the symposium are available upon request.
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.”
