Elon students will engage in a conversation with newly elected members of the North Carolina General Assembly – Senator Amy Galey and Representative Ricky Hurtado.
Galey is the former chair of the Alamance County Board of Commissioners and a former staff attorney for the Defender Corporation of Charleston County in South Carolina. Hurtado is an instructor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and co-executive director of LatinxEd. The discussion will be facilitated by Elon Votes! and Voting Ambassador student leaders.
The Active Citizen Series is designed to cultivate the next generation of informed leaders who will help strengthen communities and shape our democracy. This series allows students to gain a deeper understanding of how government works and to develop the necessary skills to engage in civil discourse across political divides.
This event is sponsored by the Elon Political Engagement Work Group, Elon Votes!, Kernodle Center for Civic Life, and Council on Civic Engagement.
