How will the breakdown in civil discourse affect this year's presidential elections?

How did we get to where we are now?

And is this unprecedented?

Join City Club of Boise on January 28th as we launch our yearlong Civility Project by looking at the public debate, from an academic perspective. Our panel will examine the importance of public discourse, through their disciplines of political science and philosophy. We'll look at the history of civil discourse, and look ahead to the looming presidential race.

Join us for an informal and informative conversation. And a timely one.

Cost is $20 per person. Beer, wine, soft drinks and light appetizers will be served, and your first drink is on us. This event is limited to 100 guests, reserved your space by noon on Wednesday, January 27th.

Email: or call 208-371-2221 and leave your name, phone number and number of guests you wish to register.

Open to City Club members and non-members. Walk up registration will be on a space available basis. Preregistration is preferred.

Our panel:

Steve Shaw, Northwest Nazarene University, professor of political science
