UC San Diego Conference on Ethics, Transparency and Civility - Part Three: Civility

11/14/2014; 85 minutes

Has civility -- the ability to encounter disparate views without disparaging those who hold them -- disappeared from American public life? And if our debates always turn into shouting matches, what are the tangible costs for society? UC San Diego's Thad Kousser moderates a terrific discussion among bipartisan elected officials and activists who show how to disagree without demonizing one another. Panelists include California State Senator Marty Block, State Assembly members Lorena Gonzalez and Marie Waldron, San Diego City Council President Todd Gloria, Chad Peace of the Independent Voter Project, Steven Dinkin of the National Conflict Resolution Center, Richard Barrera of the San Diego-Imperial County Labor Council and Robby Boparai, president of the Associated Students of UC San Diego. Recorded on 10/16/2014. (#28905)
