What is happening to civil conversations?
For our final breakfast of the season, the Tower Forum presents a formal debate about civil discourse, why it is disappearing and its impact on the voters. We are excited that two of our favorites, Ed Pozzuoli and Mitch Caesar will be at it again. What a great way to wrap up this season’s dynamic line-up of programs. Come and join us as we meet and exchange salutations with our members before the summer’s hiatus.
We welcome you to be present for this Tower Forum discussion.
