September 6: Conversation on Crossing Party Lines: The Leadership Role of Older Adults

Friday, Sept. 6, 9:30-11:30am Free, but registration is required. Call 503-288-8303

What’s going on in the world of politics? Why does talking politics so often feel off limits or fraught with danger? How can we get back to the good old days when it was OK to disagree and we could still be friends despite different views. SAGE (Senior Advocates for Generational Equity) and Crossing Party Lines will discuss the work being done in Portland to bridge the divide between left and right. Tips and guidance will be given for reclaiming our place in the political world without fear of losing friends or losing our cool.
