Partisan politics has created a roadblock in efforts to reach across the aisle and forge ahead. Nationally, the chasm separating Democrats and Republicans is vast, but what about here in Washington state? Are the same divisive politics holding up progress beneficial to all? If so, what are the characteristics and qualities needed in future leaders to govern more effectively?

Join us for a virtual Civic Cocktail program with our host Joni Balter and guests Tina Podlodowski, chair of the Washington State Democratic Party and Caleb Heimlich, chair of the Washington State Republican Party on Wednesday, March 3, at 6pm PST. This will be an in-depth conversation for about 45 minutes with the guests, including audience questions.
