Issues & Answers Forum

The vision of the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute is to create an environment where important policy decisions affecting our future are made through a process of civil discussion, critical analysis of facts, and informed participation of all citizens.

Public Policy Education addresses important issues and initiatives throughout the year to be considered for future O’Connor Institute Issues & Answers Forums, which are free to the public.  The Forums present balanced, fact-based information to educate citizens on critical issues or ballot initiatives, featuring credentialed panelists representing various perspectives, together with a non-partisan moderator.
