What Do I Think? Series

Meeting weekly | 7:30-8:30pm EST | Sept 28 - Nov 2 

(*Opening + final sessions are 7:30-9pm)

As a primer to politics, we've designed a series of thoughtful conversations to help answer your questions about the biggest political issues of our time. Consider it a nonpartisan crash course on American politics in 2020: how we got here; where we go from here; and also, how to navigate these topics with loved ones with whom we may disagree.

Experts, armed with unbiased lenses, will guide us through a variety of complex issues, by breaking down the concepts and shedding light on the mainstream perspectives + surrounding political nuances. The goal is to help participants determine where they stand.

This is not a debate.

There will be no candidate endorsing or bashing.

This is a nonpartisan, issue-neutral, educational arena for participants to safely understand the core values of the big political issues. This is a platform to develop informed opinions so that participants can confidently engage in political discussions, understand alternate perspectives and determine a personal voting strategy that accurately represents one’s ideals.
