Arena Civil Dialogues


Sunday, September 16, 2018 5:30PM


No deplorables here; how to understand each other

A dialogue of Trump supporters and opponents.

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.

Dialogue starters for each event will be announced at a later date.

Located in the Molly Smith Study
at Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater
5:30 - 7:00 p.m.
