Want to talk about an important issue with people from across the political spectrum? Want those people to listen to where you’re coming from instead telling you why you’re stupid or shouting you down? Want to have a meaty conversation about solutions that can work for everyone? We’ve got you covered.
Civic Genius is teaming up with YOUnify, AllSides, the National Institute for Civil Discourse (NICD), FixUS, and Living Room Conversations on a special event where we’ll match you with a small group of 6-8 people from across the political spectrum for a thought-provoking discussion about American infrastructure.
Not convinced that an infrastructure bill in Congress is worth an hour and a half of your day? Consider this: we’re talking about more funding for bridg
es since President Eisenhower launched the interstate highway system in the 1950s. We’re talking about the biggest national investment in public transit ever. We’re talking about whether to pay for high-speed internet and clean drinking water for millions of people.
Whether you think the federal government should pay for major upgrades, none at all, or just think it’s complicated, the fate of this bill matters to every one of us – no matter who we are or where we live. This is the place to get a 360-degree understanding of the issue and make your voice heard!
