Black Box Theater at Edmonds Community College

The LWVSC—in partnership with the college, Sno-Isle Libraries, AAUW, and NAACP—will present a panel discussion facilitated by Bob Drewel, former Snohomish County Executive.  The panelists are outstanding local leaders from a variety of public arenas: education, the media, political positions, and the community. With questions from the audience, YOU are also invited to participate in the discussion.

Historically, the strength and growth of America has depended on solutions forged out of the clash of ideas.  What has changed?  Is civility no longer valued over shouting? Is our educational system failing to address how to present reasoned arguments?  Can promoting freedom of speech allow for diversity of opinion without conflict? How can the public separate “fake news” from factual news?  What became of the middle ground in the legislatures?  What issues create conflict within Snohomish County?  These questions and more will be highlights of the evening.
