Crossing Party Lines

Presentation by Joyce Lackie. One expects disagreement in a democracy. Many feel, however, that the 2016 election has polarized the nation to an alarming degree. We see fledgling movements, some here in Portland, to counteract this polarization. Jonathan Haidt, author of The Righteous Mind, explains how people make political and religious decisions based on widely varying moral values. Searching for common ground, we look at the moral bases for how Republicans, Democrats, and Libertarians form many of their policies. Joyce has been a member of HGP since 2004 and serves on the program and scholarship committees. A Ph.D. from the University of Alabama, she has taught at three universities. She has been retired for twenty years and is now traveling and volunteering.
