The Better Arguments Project and Urban Consulate’s Better Arguments: Longtimers and Newcomers in Detroit Event
March 21, 2019 @ 8:30 am — 12:00 pm
Join the Better Arguments Project and Urban Consulate on March 21 for “Better Arguments: Longtimers and Newcomers in Detroit.” This event will provide attendees with the opportunity to engage each other in healthy dialogue to address tensions between new and longtime Detroiters in a rapidly changing city.
This is the first-ever event as part of the Better Arguments Project, a collaboration by the Aspen Institute, Facing History and Ourselves, and Allstate to help bridge ideological divides – not by papering over those divides but by teaching Americans how to have better arguments.
The morning program will include remarks by local and national leaders, facilitated conversations and interactive trainings, as well as invitations to participate in follow-up sessions. Participants will then be invited to break bread together over lunch.
