MADISON – This fall, the UW–Madison La Follette School will host a number of events that will examine critical issues facing voters as the November elections approach.
The La Follette School’s fall 2022 Journalist in Residence, Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight, will give a public talk and will visit with students and faculty on Wednesday, October 26. Tickets will be available starting October 1.
In collaboration with the Wisconsin Foundation & Alumni Association, a September 29 event will highlight the Wisconsin Idea in action and the La Follette Policy Poll released earlier this year.
As part of the Wisconsin Main Street Agenda project, the La Follette School has partnered with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Ideas Lab and Wisconsin Public Radio to hold four public forums throughout the state to discuss the issues that candidates for office should be talking about as they compete for votes this fall. A generous gift from David and Madeleine Lubar has made these town halls possible. Dates and locations of the town hall events can be found below.
Milwaukee Town Hall: September 21, 7 – 8:30 p.m.
