The Colorado Center on Law and Policy is hosting an event on October 6th, 2017 in Denver. CC students are invited to attend for a discounted fee of $40. Registration ends September 29, 2017. CC students are invited to meet the movers and shakers of public policy in Colorado and see if it is a space in which they could see themselves making an impact.
The keynote speaker of the event is Professor Ian Haney Lopez, author of Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class.
Current sociology, political science, and REMS majors may find this speech of particular interest, as will students interested in jobs in public policy.
In the past, the Colorado Center on Law and Policy has hired yearlong PIFP fellows, and will be seeking future CC hires in 2018. This event is a good way for potential applicants – and those interested in public policy – to interact with members of the policy community in Denver.
Since there are many CC alumni in the nonprofit world in Denver, friendly, non-threatening network opportunities abound!
