Where Do We Go From Here? February
Last Updated by
Join us Wednesday, Feb. 21 at Noon in the South Dakota Community Foundation Gallery at the Black Hills Bureau for Where Do We Go from Here? Chuck Parkinson hosts our lively monthly discussions about local, regional and national issues.
This month the topic is "Direct Democracy: Initiative and Referendum in South Dakota."
Dr. Pamela Carriveau, Associate Professor, Political Science and Sociology, BHSU
Robb Timm, President and CEO, Chiesman Center for Democracy, Inc.
Dr. John Van Benthuysen, Assistant Professor, Political Science, BHSU
The panelists will tackle such questions as what is the difference between “Direct Democracy” and “Representative Democracy”? What is an “Initiative” and what is a “Referendum” and how is the process unique in South Dakota? What are the issues and concerns we are facing today in the balance between Direct and Representative Democracy?
Bring a 'brown bag' lunch, learn and share your thoughts.
The event is free and open to everyone. If you can’t join us in person, watch online at SDPB.org.
