Following each session of the Indiana State Legislature, the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus (IBLC) hosts a series of town hall meetings around the state to review the past session and to develop priorities for the next legislative session.
At each of these town hall meetings, members of the IBLC will attend to inform the public about legislation enacted during the previous session. IBLC members field questions about the legislative process and their role in it. Attendees have the opportunity to help the IBLC lay the groundwork for its future legislative agenda as it relates to economic justice, social opportunity and racial equality.

Indianapolis - June 3rd, Julia M. Carson Government Center, 300 E. Fall Creek Parkway N. Drive at noon ET
