CIVIL DISCOURSE IN ACTION: A Health Care Reform Dialogue In the 8th Congressional District

MARCH 31, 2018
10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
downtown Issaquah

Do you think Americans have lost the art of civil discourse and the ability to engage in polite political conversation? Do you live in Washington’s 8th Congressional District?*

If you answered yes to these questions, the League of Women Voters of Seattle-King County invites you to participate in a grassroots experiment. We’re bringing together a group of residents with different political, religious, ethnic and cultural perspectives to have an informed discussion about healthcare reform.

Here’s how the forum will work:

    • The League will provide background information on health care reform to aid in an informed discussion.

    • Participants will be assigned to a small discussion group. Skilled facilitators will lead the discussion.

    • Each group will report highlights of their discussion to the larger group. The League will prepare a summary of all the ideas that come out of the discussion.

The League will share your views and ideas with your Congressional representatives, and post a summary on our website.

Participation is limited to ensure that discussion groups reflect the political and ethnic diversity of the 8th Congressional District. If you’re interested in participating, please complete this brief survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WCVR9QV

Participants will be chosen by order of registration, with the goal of creating balanced groups. Light pastries and coffee will be provided to participants.
