2018 IBLC Town Hall series visits Terre Haute this Sat., May 19

INDIANAPOLIS – For a third consecutive year, the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus (IBLC) will conduct a series of town hall meetings across the state to give an update on the 2018 session of the Indiana General Assembly and begin preparations for the 2019 legislative session.

Present plans call for the IBLC to conduct six town halls, starting at noon on April 7 in Indianapolis at the Julia M. Carson Government Center.

“Even though we will be returning to the Statehouse for a special session in mid-May, the IBLC believes there is a need to inform the public now about what has transpired these past few months in the Legislature,” said State Rep. Cherrish Pryor (D-Indianapolis), IBLC Chair.

“Our annual town hall meetings serve as a chance to tell residents about the legislation that has passed that can have an impact on their lives, as well as the things that haven’t been done. In addition, we want to begin preparing for 2019, and the input of people across our state is critical in setting those priorities.”

Pryor emphasized that the town halls are free and open to everyone.

Partnering with the IBLC on the town halls are the Indiana Minority Health Coalition, Indiana Black Expo, Inc., and the Indiana State Conference of the NAACP.

Here is this year’s town hall schedule. All meetings will be from noon to 2 p.m. local time on the scheduled days:

APRIL 7, 2018 (INDIANAPOLIS) in the Julia M. Carson Government Center, 300 E. Fall Creek Parkway North.
