Wednesday, October 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. or
Tuesday, October 27 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. (Virtual Dialogues)
*In partnership with Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, National Issues Forums, and Central Arkansas Library System
The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute and the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service will conduct two online citizen dialogues in October that ask participants to answer the question “What would we have to give up to get the political system we want?”
The dialogues will be conducted on Zoom and are free for all participants. The public can choose to attend on Wednesday, October 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., or Tuesday, October 27 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
You can register online here.
The purpose of these dialogues is to help people on all sides of the political spectrum deliberate on how we should approach the issues of division and outrage that prevent us from making progress on urgent problems in the United States. The National Issue Forum Guide “A House Divided” provides a safe and structured experience for participants that will last no longer than two hours.
Participants will not debate each other - quite the opposite. In small, randomized groups led by trained, nonpartisan facilitators, participants will evaluate and discuss three options that could help heal our country’s partisan divide and give all Americans a way to move forward, together.
The Clinton School for Public Service and the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute are network partners of the National Issues Forum. The Central Arkansas Library System is also providing support for “A House Divided.”
The Clinton School Speaker Series not only enhances the education of Clinton School students, but also provides a venue for the public to engage in intellectual discussions on the issues of the day.
