Can Coloradans With Opposing Political Views Find Common Ground? Unify Challenge Is The Test
Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser and former Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams want to get Coloradans to discuss issues with people of opposing political views. Weiser, a Democrat from Denver, and Williams, a Republican from Colorado Springs, partnered with Unify America and America Talks to host three virtual events where people from across the state can discuss various issues.
You’ll have three options, all virtual and for about one hour. Tuesday, April 26 at 7:00 PM Mountain Time, Wednesday, April 27 at 7:00 PM Mountain Time, or Saturday, April 30 at 10:00 AM Mountain Time. You will be paired with a person with opposing political views, but if that’s not possible, the system will pair people who live in different parts of the state.
The Unify Challenge Ginsburg-Scalia Initiative refers to the friendship of the late Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who were known for being good friends despite being on the opposite ends of the political spectrum. It was created to develop and celebrate the norm of respectful dialogue, and listening and learning from different points of view.
