Why are we so divided? Is there anything we can do about it? Greater Mankato Growth is pleased to partner with Shannon Watson of Majority in the Middle for a discussion about the current state of bipartisanship in Minnesota. As political polarization has increasingly become a factor in our communities, schools, civic organizations and businesses, we’re all learning how to navigate divides. Join us to learn about the (sometimes surprising) origins of division and actual steps you can take to bring down the temperature.
Program includes a box lunch. Registration cost: $10
