Civility in Politics: Contrasting Visions and Tolerance — Finding Common Ground from Various Perspectives

The Hinckley Institute of Politics recently hosted the second part of a 2-Part panel discussion titled: Civility in Politics. Last week, the panel surveyed the political landscape, both nationally and locally, then addressed the question: Why has civility in politics declined? Well this week’s panel looks to find common ground among various perspectives, while promoting tolerance.

Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah; Lisa-Michele Church, Attorney in Private Practice and Community Activist; Patrick Reimherr, a Student at the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah; and the conversation was moderated by Mark Button, Chair of the Department of Political Science at the University of Utah
