League of Women Voters Greater Verde Valley – Voter Education Program: Rebuilding trust to save our civil society
November 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join the League for this timely post-election session. In this session, Dr. Carolyn Lukensmeyer, National Inst. For Civil Discourse, will explore how we got to where we are today, and how we can help the country and each other heal and rebuild the social norms of civility and respect so that we can live together with our differences. We have a profound opportunity for building new bridges across our divides, and addressing some of the challenges facing our democracy in this time.
