It would seem that the vitriolic rhetoric circulating our media is something new, but unfortunately, it’s been occurring since the founding of the country. From controversial land grabs from the Native Americans to the influx of immigrant workers to the brave families escaping war and famine, immigration is an integral part of our nation’s history. Therefore, it’s incumbent upon us to educate ourselves on immigration so we can prepare for a better future.Find out more »

We live in polarized times. As red and blue states fracture and political discourse turns increasingly hostile, sober analysis of the left/right divide is needed more than ever. How can the President be seen by some as a savvy businessman with the courage to take on a corrupt political system, while others see a narcissist-in-chief whose buffoonery would be laughable if not so dangerous? Why is the contrast in perception so sharp on issue after issue, from climate change to immigration, MeToo to Judge Kavanaugh? In a wide-ranging discussion, Dr. Mark Horowitz will demonstrate that the left/right divide runs much deeper than political philosophy. Indeed, liberals and conservatives differ not just in politics but in personality; not just in beliefs but in cognitive styles, characteristic emotions, and even food and leisure pursuits. Come hear Dr. Horowitz discuss why we see the world so differently and what this could mean for our ability to achieve progress in our fractured country and around the world.Find out more »
