Voices Heard: Sophisticated Approaches to Community Engagement

Nov. 8, 2019 , 10:45 am – 11:45 am

When Harris County, Texas Judge Lina Hidalgo was elected in November 2018 to lead the nation’s third most populous county, she set out to understand the needs and sentiments of her community in a manner that would ensure all voices were uplifted, regardless of their social or economic standing or their level of engagement with local government. During this session, Judge Hidalgo and her partners in this endeavor will share their innovative strategy for community engagement, which included surveys in five languages and a team of 40+ community canvassers, and will invite input from attendees on their own approaches to empowering constituent voices.
