Mar 12, 2014

Don’t discuss religion or politics — that’s what they say about making polite conversation. But a non-profit is trying to change that way of thinking.

The Village Square promotes civil discussion groups.

On Wednesday's Up to Date, we talk with representatives from the Village Square, a group that encourages civil discussion about often controversial civic issues.


  • Allan Katz, former U.S. ambassador to Portugal
  • Liz Joyner, Village Square executive director and co-founder
