Better Talk, Session 1: Talk to Me Civil

PublicSource presents a conversation series for Pittsburghers to discuss issues that matter. Session 1: Talk to Me Civil

About this Event
What are the tenets of positive civil discourse?
How does identity shape how we communicate?
What is the state of civil discourse in Pittsburgh?

Our conversation series, Better Talk, is a curated safe space for Pittsburghers to discuss the issues that matter for our shared future. Join PublicSource for an evening of civil discourse and community with Pittsburghers B. DeNeice Welch and Calum Matheson. The panel-based discussion will center on civil discourse and what's needed to revive and sustain it.

You'll flex your conversational muscle and practice listening skills, while meeting neighbors who also want to elevate their conversations.
