Can Civics be Civil? - Video Recording

A video recording of this discussion is available here.

Civility in public discourse is the topic for the League of Women Voters – Greater Chippewa Valley meeting Tuesday, February 28, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts, 205 Main Street, Menomonie.

The League and co-sponsor UW-Stout Center for Applied Ethics encourage students, voters, and people of all backgrounds and viewpoints to join them in the discussion.

Speakers are Chris Freeman, Professor, UW-Stout Social Science and Tim Nordin, President Eau Claire School Board. Dr. Freeman will present historical traditions of civil discourse and will share his experiences as a member of the Menomonie School Board during sometimes-contentious discussions about pandemic measures and curricular issues. Dr. Nordin will discuss his school board leadership when targeted by a death threat. Following their presentations, both speakers will respond to audience questions and comments. Attendance is free and registration is not required.
