Make Shift Coffee House: Exploring Our Political Divides

April 29 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Why do YOU think that the country is so divided? How did we get this way? Will it get worse? What would it take for the divide to get smaller; for us to become more politically aligned?

And why are conversations about politics so hard? Has it always been this way? Does our ability to have on-line conversations inhibit our ability to have face-to-face conversations? Do YOU feel more adversarial now than you used to towards people with different political views? If so, why?

These are just some of the questions we will take up informally across tables and in a structured discussion across the room.

Music by Jud Caswell (www.judcaswell.com). Refreshments served.
