family-dinner_GT2

The application for the fall Democracy through Dialogue events has been extended to November 4th!

We believe that now, more than ever, we must engage in dialogue with people who have different beliefs in order to broaden our perspectives and generate understanding. The Democracy through Dialogue series was created for this reason. This program welcomes UW undergraduates of any background, major, or ideology to participate in a facilitated, intimate, lively and productive dialogue about critical issues of our time.

Extended Application Deadline: November 4th
Online application found at: www.uw.edu/carlson/dialogue

Fall Dialogues:
November 13th, 5-8pm
November 19th, 5-8pm

Fall Topics:
Free Speech: Nonviolent Protest
Education for All: Conduct & Discipline

Democracy through Dialogue aims to revive the art of public discourse across difference. It will do so by helping UW students develop their capacity to connect and disagree in ways that are both personally and civically constructive. The premise is that authentic, compassionate connection across difference is essential to our ongoing pursuit of justice and liberty for all.
