"How to Have a Civil Conversation Across the Political Divide" with Nadine Strossen and Judge Michael Mukasey

Friday, February 1, 2019, 1:00 AM

Strossen and Mukasey will visit the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership at ASU to have a conversation that models a civil, mutually respectful, and vigorous exchange of ideas on issues that challenge American society. These speakers, intellectually and politically opposed on many of the issues, will demonstrate that lively civil discourse is possible, even when we deeply disagree about the issues. This sort of dialogue is the path to civil disagreement and perhaps past the polarization that constitutes America's civic crisis. Nadine Strossen, a chaired professor at New York Law School, is a widely recognized expert on constitutional law and civil liberties. The former President of the American Civil Liberties Union (1991-2008), she now serves on the ACLU's National Advisory Council, as well as the Advisory Boards of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, and Heterodox Academy. . Michael B. Mukasey served as the 81st Attorney General of the United States, the nation's chief law enforcement officer, from November 2007 to January 2009. During that time, he oversaw the U.S. Justice Department and advised on critical issues of domestic and international law.
