The first year of Donald Trump's presidency has exposed enormous fault lines in American politics. But citizens of different perspectives rarely engage in real conversation; instead, they shout past each other. In such a polarized environment, how can we talk across our differences? Building upon two dialogues held last spring, Cairn and Penn universities will sponsor, in partnership with Common Party, two more public forums on October 18 (at Penn) and November 15 (at Cairn). We hope to engage students and faculty from both institutions as well as from Drexel, Temple, Villanova, Lincoln, Eastern, and other area colleges and universities. Our goal to is bring together a wide array of people--from a broad range of political perspectives--to explore ways we can learn from each other.

Transportation to Cairn University on November 15th will be provided via Penn shuttle bus. The shuttle bus will be leaving from the Graduate School of Education, 3700 Walnut, at 6:00pm sharp.
