This post-election briefing with community organizers and political professionals from Texas will assess the 2012 election results, with a focus on participation among traditionally disenfranchised communities, especially, youth, Hispanics and African Americans.
National political professionals and pollsters will be teleconferencing in to provide an overview of how Texas fits into the national landscape.
The event is sponsored by the School of Journalism and the Texas Civic Engagement Table, which was established in 2010 to address the low level of voter engagement.
