Event description

Description

Polarization and partisanship pervading and paralyzing our nation’s politics have left our nation’s promise is in peril. Democracy demands compromise and engagement across difference. Yet, today we find ourselves isolated into islands surrounded by people who think or look like us. The norm today is to separate and isolate when we disagree, not to convene and collaborate. The norm today is uncivil debates and tirades, not civil discourse. How do we bridge our deepening divides? How do resume our quest toward a more perfect union?

Power of WE and The Village Square welcome Former Congressmen David Jolly (R) and Patrick Murphy (D) to a riveting forum exploring how we arrived here and how we can forge a bipartisan path in this partisan world. Roundtable conversations will follow.

This event is the third installment in Power of WE’s Shared Spaces Series in which individuals spanning the spectrum of politics and life experience gather to interact across different perspectives and grapple with the defining questions and shared challenges we face.
