Bring It To The Table: A Civil Discourse Workshop.
Bring It To The Table is a campaign to reclaim civil discourse in America. At the core of this effort is a rallying cry for every citizen to take ownership of their biases and to recognize our personal responsibility in either dividing or healing the nation. The Bring It format mines for the personal experiences that inform our convictions, and encourages a more trans-partisan outlook focused on issues rather than party affiliations.
