BRIDGING THE DIVIDE
Sept. 27 at the Ohio History Center
Negative ads. Robo calls. Finger pointing. Divisive politics... How did it come to this? Is this what Ohioans get for living in a key battleground state?
An Exploration of Bipartisanship
The Ohio Historical Society is partnering with No Labels, a Washington-based movement seeking bipartisan political reforms, to host Bridging the Divide: An Adult Conversation About Ohio Politics, for a Change, a forum that aspires to be everything the negative TV ads are not. Join us on Thursday, Sept. 27, at 7 p.m. at the Ohio History Center at I-71 & 17th Avenue in Columbus for an adult conversation about Ohio, its rich political history and an exploration of bipartisanship in an era of sharp divisions.
