In a time when election-year politics have hit a fevered pitch, American Public Square at Jewell is pleased to welcome founders of The Lincoln Project (TLP), a notable group of political strategists who seek to, in their own words, “hold accountable those who would violate their oaths to the Constitution and would put others before Americans.”
In so doing, The Lincoln Project is bucking their Republican roots and the GOP party line to back the Biden-Harris Presidential ticket in 2020, and their message has been getting a lot of attention.
At APS, our goal is to challenge ourselves and each other, and to grow in our ideas as a result. With bitter polarization and a collective “allergy” to civil discourse on the rise, we will use this opportunity to explore what has motivated these veterans of the political system to shed their partisan identity to pursue a once unthinkable political objective—electing a U.S. President on the other side of the infamous aisle–out of a sense of patriotic duty to their country.
We invite you to join APS as we engage in a moderated conversation with this group to explore the strength inherent in learning to change one’s mind.
- What is it like to go against the grain of your political party?
- Have party-line politics crippled us as a society?
- How has polarization and extremism changed the moderate spectrum of both parties?
- Does any leader have the ability to unite our deeply divided nation?
