January 10, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

What’s the right response to troubling political trends?

Protest? Tweet? Violence? Vote?

What role should civil discourse play to bring change or make peace?

Come hear Make Shift Coffee House founder and public policy expert Craig Freshley share his views and lead a discussion

As a volunteer Craig has organized 25 Make Shift Coffee Houses – places where liberals and conservatives come to understand each other’s political views. As a professional facilitator Craig has run over 3000 meetings of nonprofits, governments, and companies. He’s authored a book called The Wisdom of Group Decisions.

Craig will explain current trends, past successes and failures of civil discourse, and lessons learned from Make Shift Coffee Houses.

If you are wondering, “What should be done to combat political craziness?” If you are questioning, “What part should I play?” Come hear what Craig has to say. Ask questions. Share answers.
