The Coffee Party USA is a hosting partner with the National Week of Conversation event, which runs April 20-28, 2018.
We will be using the guides created by Living Room Conversations to get the ball rolling on our quest to encourage the use of civility and reason all across America. This particular conversation is "Ranked Choice Voting."
Most of us want the healthiest democracy we can design. Are our current voting systems producing the best outcomes for citizens? Some people believe that ranked choice voting produces an outcome more reflective of the majority of citizen’s wishes. It has also been argued that ranked choice voting can reduce negative campaigning, allows voters more choices and saves money. Are our democratic processes serving us well?
Part of what makes Coffee Party Talks special is the commitment of our participants to these conversation agreements:
- Be curious and open to learning.
- Show respect and suspend judgment.
- Find common ground and note differences.
- Be authentic and welcome that from others.
- Be purposeful and to the point.
- Own and guide the conversation.
Sign up and join the conversation! Saturday, April 28 1-2:30 p.m. Eastern.
