“In January 2004, college students from postsecondary institutions across Wisconsin were invited to join U.S. Representatives Tammy Baldwin and Mark Green at The Johnson Foundation’s Wingspread Conference Center in Racine, Wisconsin. The purpose of the discussion was to engage students’ attitudes regarding politics, and their understanding of connections between community service and involvement in the political process. In this report, I lay out our reasons for developing this event, recount the exchange, and consider its ramifications for increasing youth civic engagement.”
