Join the Braver Angels DC and Fairfax Alliances and the George Mason chapter of BridgeUSA at George Mason University’s Fenwick Library Main Reading Room (room 2001), located at 4400 University Drive in Fairfax, VA. We’ll be discussing the pressing issue of how K-12 education can help to reduce political polarization.

Fordham Institute, and Mike Webb, Senior Vice President, Media & Marketing for the News Literacy Project. Braver Angels DC Alliance Co-chair James Coan will moderate.
