Deliberative Conversation on A House Divided
What would we have to give up to get the political system we want? It’s never been more important to talk to each other about tough problems. Practice listening with empathy and respect, considering other perspectives, weighing the trade-offs of courses of action in a National Issues Forum. The kinds of problems that deliberation is meant to address are not things for which we have the one perfect answer. This is an opportunity for the kinds of conversations we don’t usually have. This forum will use the guide “A House Divided: What Would We Have to Give Up to Get the Political System We Want?" from the National Issues Forums.
- considering other perspectives
- weighing the trade-offs
