From Louisville, Kentucky: League of Women Voters of Kentucky President, Teena Halbig noted, "It takes a local community of committed individuals to develop healthy civil society. This forum challenges citizens to take action after this program to use their individual power to make a positive difference!"

Every forum participant is asked to pledge to take action to build a better world. Through our network, you can volunteer, give, or build understanding.
