We are so excited to present the first installment of our video series Civic Coffee Chats of the new year! This series highlights IPCE staff, researchers, and civic friends’ latest thoughts on policy passions, social trends in civic engagement and public policy, learned lessons, best practices, and hobbies. And, of course, how they take their coffee.
