“A Question of Respect”, a book talk with Celinda Lake and Ed Goeas

March 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

EST  | Virtual

Join the conversation with pollsters and long time friends Ed Goeas (Republican), and Celinda Lake (Democrat), as they discuss how we can all work together in an increasingly polarized political world and make the case that the only way for America to escape its current divide is through mutual respect. America’s problems will never be resolved unless we can bridge our differences.

But with today’s all encompassing ‘us versus them’ mentality, that might seem almost impossible. How did we get to this point of intense dysfunction and combativeness in both in person and online interactions? And most importantly, how do we fix it? In their book, “A Question of Respect”, Ed and Celinda explore the possible roads that led us to this moment, and how respect is the first step we need to take in order to trust one another.

This program is pre-recorded.
