April 6 – Defy the Divide: A Path to Civility Online Discussion

April 6 – Defy the Divide: A Path to Civility Online Discussion

To support and foster a more civil and informative public dialogue about some of the fundamental issues dividing Americans, Oakland University’s Center for Civic Engagement will hold a series of timely discussions entitled, “Toward A More Perfect Union.”

The first panel discussion, “Defy the Divide: A Path to Civility,” features U.S. Representatives Elissa Slotkin (D-Holly), Debbie Dingell (D-Dearborn) and Fred Upton (R-Kalamazoo), members of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Problem Solvers Caucus, an evenly divided group of lawmakers who work to create bipartisan solutions to important policy issues.

The discussion will focus on how to find common ground in a time of highly charged partisan politics.

Journalists Stephen Henderson and Nolan Finley will moderate the panel. Finley and Henderson, who are among Michigan’s most respected news commentators, founded The Civility Project, a non-partisan initiative to restore civility in politics in southeast Michigan.
