Leah Seppanen Anderson moderates the “Can We Talk” Workshop

Add your voice to a regional dialogue on the state of our nation.

Check out this recent USA Today story: Poll portrays a nation angrily divided as election approaches.

Grim, right? How did things get this bad?

Can We Talk? believes things don’t have to be that way. At each of our student dialogues, you’ll experience a much different way to discuss things that matter to you, your family, your country. And you’ll leave with tips on how to hold difficult conversations – on campus, online, at home.

Check out the Can We Talk? approach.

The event will be held on zoom. A link to the event will be provided to all registered attendees.

Sponsored by the Gamba Family Red & Blue Exchange, an initiative of the SNF Paideia Program at the University of Pennsylvania. Made possible by the Gamba Family and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
