It was great to have a five minute spot to speak about Prop 2 at the Progressives in the Park event in Grand Rapids last week. Voters Not Politicians was the third slot after Dan Kildee and Jocelyn Benson. See the overview of the event here.
I was a panelist for the IPPSR Inaugural Public Policy Series on Redistricting held at the Michigan State Capitol in January of this year. The full panel discussion can be viewed here.
Listen to my interview with Shelley Irwin here.
Along with being a co-grantee for IPPSR's Michigan Applied Public Policy Research grant in 2017 I was also chosen as the Johnson Center's Mawby Fellow from 2016-2018. The Mawby Fellowship is an monetary and research assistance award given to one faculty member to work on a research project related to philanthropy. I worked with two undergraduate students at GVSU (Jamie Brda '18 and Madison Barnes '19) who worked tireless to categorize and code nonprofit and foundation data in the cities of Detroit and Flint. It is a wonderful program for GVSU faculty engaged in research related to the study of philanthropic behavior. My WGVU interview with Shelly Irwin is coming up on June 29 at 9:20 am.
