Episode 18: Civic engagement 101

Civic engagement is something we may hear about from time to time, but what does it really mean? Lisa Hinz and Beth Kallestad, Extension educators with University of Minnesota Extension’s Center for Community Vitality, discuss the meaning of civic engagement, best practices in working with others, and resources to help you become involved.

"Remember that you matter. You may not feel like you are powerful or that you can add to the conversation but remind yourself that you are worth getting involved."

— Lisa Hinz
