2019 IBLC Town Halls to begin Saturday, May 18, in Indianapolis; caucus plans seven stops across Indiana through summer
The Indiana Black Legislative Caucus (IBLC) will begin its annual series of town halls across the state with a stop in Indianapolis on Saturday, May 18.
In all, IBLC members will visit seven locations across Indiana through the end of August, according to IBLC Chair Robin Shackleford (D-Indianapolis).
“These events serve two valuable functions for the IBLC,” Shackleford said. “It affords our members the chance to review the work of the Indiana General Assembly during the 2019 session. In addition, even though we just finished our work for 2019, the planning already has started for the 2020 legislative session. We want to hear from the people of Indiana what they want to see lawmakers do next year.
“Our town halls have proven to be very popular, and they are invaluable to members of the IBLC in determining what we need to pursue as a legislative agenda,” she continued. “I encourage everyone to join us for these events.”
