TTT1742 October 16 Racial Justice-Polarization

In this edition of TTT, we explore two approaches to discussing race and other issues that often divide citizens. Vina Kay, executive director of Voices for Racial Justice, explains how her organization developed a unique set of questions for candidates to get beyond simple “yes” and “no” positions to a deeper discussion of race and public service.

 

Professor William Doherty, director of the Citizen Professional Center at the University of Minnesota and founder of Better Angels, a grassroots effort to depolarize American communities, discusses how political polarization is reaching dangerous levels across the country, and what can be done about it.
