The Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy (CLOSUP) and the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy invite you to participate in an upcoming Community Conversation on MARCH 30, 4:00pm - 5:30pm, in the Ford School Annenberg Auditorium (1120). In partnership with the Center for Michigan, a nonprofit and nonpartisan “think-and-do” tank located in Ann Arbor, we are convening a group of up to 150 people for a 90 minute discussion on trust in government. 

During this session we will be asking participants about their biggest barriers to trusting state government, as well as their ideas for what it would take to improve trust. Topics will include state government services, management of the public purse, and oversight of Michigan’s political system.

The Center for Michigan plans to take the priorities we share in this discussion and amplify them to state leaders. Our conversation will be one of more than 150 structured dialogues taking place from now through the end of 2016.  Altogether, the participants will include more than 3,000 Michigan residents from all over the state.
