Join Political Civility Project debate Monday at 7:30 p.m.

The 2020 George Fox Political Civility Project continues, looking for ways to counteract increasing polarization and alienation in American politics.

At 7:30 p.m. (please note updated start time) this Monday, Oct. 19, professors Mark Hall and Phil Smith will debate about whom we should vote for in the U.S. presidential election. Attendees will be invited to assess levels of civility in the debate and also hear a brief report on how the vice presidential debate, and perhaps others, fared in terms of civility.

Attendees will also be given a chance to comment on what next steps our university should take to promote peacemaking in politics.  The event is open to the public via this Zoom link, and those on campus may attend the event live in Bauman Auditorium.

In compliance with social distancing regulations, when the room reaches its 100-person COVID capacity, any others who arrive will be directed to join those attending (including any off-campus guests) via Zoom.
