          About This Event

          Summary

          How has Indianapolis politics been shaped by 25 years of demographic and social change? The 25th Joseph Taylor Symposium explores this complex question with leading practitioners, politicians, policy-makers, and researchers. Policy can have unintended consequences, and research may not provide readily applicable answers; how can the two come together to prepare us for the next 25 years?
