On July 23 in Philadelphia, BPC and USA Today are hosting a National Conversation on Public Service. Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell will be joined by Commission on Political Reform Co-Chairs Olympia Snowe, Trent Lott, Dan Glickman, Dirk Kempthorne and several commission members to talk about public service. The event will be the second in a series of interactive town hall meetings across the country examining our political system. You can learn more about the event and register to attend here.

BPC would also like to highlight several organizations helping to make Philadelphia a better place.

What does public service mean to you, and how are you serving your community? As part of an effort to encourage young Americans to engage in public service, BPC’s Commission on Political Reform is currently holding a photo contest we’re calling ‘Snaps of Service.’ Send us a photo of you or others giving back and you could win a trip to our National Conversation on Public Service event in Philadelphia for a reception with Commission members and a $500 donation in your name to one of the charities above. Learn more about the contest, including how to enter, here.
