Good Trouble: Promoting Civic Engagement Among Young Professionals
The time is now to get engaged in our community! Learn how to get into “good trouble” from a panel of experienced civic leaders in San Antonio.
In 2016 Congressman John Lewis gave a call to action to “Get in Trouble. Good Trouble.” This call to action is being answered by the growing millennial population that makes up the largest voting bloc in our country today. New Leaders Council San Antonio (NLC) and the Young Nonprofit Professionals of San Antonio (YNP) join together for a panel that will discuss ways for young professionals to get involved in local government and help create a more equitable and tolerant San Antonio. This event will feature a panel of experienced civic leaders followed by a networking mixer. The panel will explore topics including serving on boards and commissions, working in the non-profit sector, impacting policy from our neighborhoods to city hall, and becoming a change maker across industries in San Antonio.
