Let's Fix Washington @ UCLA
Time & Location
About The Event
In today’s hyper-partisan world of politics and the entrenched gridlock in Washington, should Americans believe that we can, in fact, find common ground on the most pressing issues we face as a nation? And is there still time for today’s elected leaders to inspire all generations with a spirit of thoughtful, hard-fought, consensus-driven bipartisanship?
Former Members of Congress David Jolly (R) and Patrick Murphy (D) believe we can. During their town hall tour, they pull the curtain back on how we got here and shine a light on the inside reasons why Washington has fallen into stalemate and dysfunction. long the way, Jolly and Murphy discuss opportunities for bipartisan leadership and how to build political consensus while demonstrating that even in times of disagreement on solutions to our country’s most divisive issues, those disagreements need not divide us.
This event is co-sponsored in part by the Jack D. Gordon Institute for Public Policy at Florida International University's Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs.
