Arena Forum: Civil Dialogues

Tuesday, May 29, 2018 6:30PM

Sold Out!

Exploring the future of race relations in America

These dialogues seek to provide an opportunity for members of the Washington, DC metropolitan community to engage in discourse about major current issues. They also seek to demonstrate that people of very diverse viewpoints can have fruitful dialogues with one another. We hence assume that all participants have consented to heed the rules of civil dialogue, such as not attributing motives, not demonizing the other side, and showing that they truly listen to the other. There will be a few dialogue starters but most of the time will be dedicated to give and take among the participants. The dialogues will be moderated by Amitai Etzioni.

Panelists for May 29 include:

Niambi Carter, Assistant Professor, Howard University

Clarissa Martínez de Castro, Deputy Vice President, Office of Research, Advocacy, and Legislation, Unidos US

Richard Kahlenberg, Senior Fellow, The Century Foundation

Lisa Rice, President & CEO, National Fair Housing Alliance

Janelle Wong, Professor of American Studies, University of Maryland

Located in the Arlene and Robert Kogod Cradle
