Strengthening Democracy, One Small Step at a Time

A simple conversation model could help citizens bridge the nation's partisan divide.

Last year, Dave Isay and his colleagues decided to see if this simple conversation model could help citizens bridge the nation's partisan divide. One Small Step invites citizens from different political backgrounds to interview one another about their perspectives and how they came to those views. The result is what you might hope for--more light, more understanding, less heat, and less antagonism. Join us at the City Club as we discuss strengthening our democracy with Dave Isay. A special program for our 2022 City Club Annual Meeting begins at 11 a.m.

This forum is the Samuel O. Freedlander Memorial Forum on Free Speech. This forum is sponsored by Ulmer Attorneys. Production and distribution of City Club forums in partnership with ideastream is generously provided by PNC and the United Black Fund.
