Back to all events

In recent years, there has been increased concern about our elections. People worry about election interference, election integrity, and restrictions on access to voting. How can we ensure safe and inclusive voting in the U.S.? Join us as we deliberate over options that emphasize improving voter turnout, securing elections, and making voting fairer and more all-embracing. Register online for "Elections: How Should We Encourage and Safeguard Voting?".

Deliberative dialogues are unique opportunities for collaborative thinking about pressing public issues. Because each dialogue is a deliberation, attendees drive the conversation in small groups facilitated by trained moderators. Deliberation is unlike panel discussions or debates. It is highly participatory, egalitarian, and non-adversarial. The foundation of each dialogue is an issue guide. These guides offer an opportunity to critically explore an issue and discuss options to address the issue while also putting our values at the center of the conversation. This semester, there will be three dialogues, all in person.
