Understanding Your Community’s Civic Health and What to Do About It

The second event in the series focuses on understanding a community’s civic health and the elements that contribute to a strong civic culture. What does the term “civic health” mean? What role can civic infrastructure play in bridging community divides and fostering engagement? What does civic engagement have to do with American democracy? How can Little Rock residents understand civic health of our own community and what can we do to make it stronger?
