Trust Conversation: Political Civility in Uncivil Times

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4 at 7:30 PM

Voters are frustrated and angry, and both presidential candidates have record-high disapproval ratings. Is political civility possible in such a context? Dr. Amy E. Black, Professor of Political Science at Wheaton College (IL), will discuss some of the roots of the current election turmoil and offer thoughts for seeking more civil and constructive political dialogue.
