Moderator:  Missouri State University President Clif Smart

All times listed are central time (CT).

President Smart sits down with Dr. Bill Doherty, co-founder of Braver Angels, to discuss how Americans can better come together to bridge the partisan divide and strengthen our democratic republic.   Do our politics have to be demonizing? Does it have to bring out the worst in us? Do our politics have to destroy the goodwill of our society?  Is social isolation and the dehumanizing of our fellow Americans something we should accept? 

This virtual conversation will explore how Braver Angels is working across the nation to build civic trust and help move from hatred or disdain to respect and appreciation.
