What we can still learn from Jefferson and Franklin

Posted by on August 07, 2017 at 6:00 PM


Join 92Y + The Village Square this September as they celebrate the 230th Anniversary of the signing of the Constitution with a return to civil dialogue in a polarized era.

With the Ben Franklin Circles and Jefferson Dinners, they're reviving two simple (and fun!) models of bringing people together face-to-face to examine shared values, hash out differences and chart paths forward for working together. On each of the websites, you can learn how to join or host a circle or dinner.

A toolkit has also been created with more details. View the first half of the toolkit here and the second half here.
