3 ways to take part in the Your Water, Your Voice campaign from anywhere

As a part of the Center’s “Your Water, Your Voice” campaign, the Center is hosting to regional Summits in October to hear how residents would resolve the state's acute water issues.

No matter where you live in Michigan, your voice matters to us.

That’s why the Center for Michigan’s public engagement team is heading all over the state this fall to meet with residents during our Your Water, Your Voice campaign. We want to hear from you how YOU think Michigan should address our most pressing water issues. What we hear on the road will form our upcoming Citizen’s Water Agenda, a report on residents' water priorities that will be delivered to every state-level elected leader. 

Now, while our team will go anywhere, we can’t get everywhere - as much as we wish we could.

So know that even if we can’t make it to your hometown this fall, we still want to hear from you!

Here are three ways to make sure we do:

1) Tune into our Citizen Water Summits and participate in the live audience polling

The Center for Michigan is hosting two Citizen Water Summits this October. The panels and Citizen Sound Off Session will be livestreamed on Bridge Magazine’s Facebook page. The Sound Off Session starts with a series of multiple choice questions; you can answer these no matter where you are if you download TurningPoint, a live polling app. Click here for directions on how to download and use TurningPoint. 

2) Sound off in our Water Survey

Let us know what you think here and now. You can answer all of the water questions we’re asking on the road right here in our Digital Citizen Sound Off: surveymonkey.com/r/yourwater. When our campaign is done, we’ll add all of our online responses to the ones we got in person.

3) Reach out to us at any time on Facebook or Twitter at @BridgeMichigan. 

Send as a direct message, or use the #MiWaterAgenda!

BONUS MATERIAL: Make sure you check out “Lake to Tap: A citizen’s guide to Michigan’s water systems and issues” and Bridge’s 2019 Water Watch to catch up on where Michigan’s waters stand now.
