This Thursday the L.A. Library Foundation’s ALOUD program hosts a panel discussion about the possibility of thawing America’s internal cold war in political discourse. The Advancement Project‘s Connie Rice joins U.C. Irvine Professor Rick Hasen (this year’s go-to man on political polarization), along with KPCC immigration correspondent Leslie Berestein Rojas, Young Republican leader Nicole Stygar and USC/Norman Lear Center chair Marty Kaplan to answer the question, “The Voting Wars: How Do We Move Beyond Partisanship and Polarization—or Should We?”
The discussion promises to be lively and enlightening – with the delicious possibility of shouting matches and chair-throwing. (Just kidding.) Like voting itself, the event is free, but reservations are necessary by visiting ALOUDS’s site or calling (213) 228-7025.
Mark Taper Auditorium-Central Library, September 20, 7:15 p.m.
