Caitlin Quatromani and Lauran Arledge, friends and professional working moms who are
on opposite sides of the political spectrum, bring their ground-breaking “Red Mom
+ Blue Mom” talk to Linn-Benton Community College Thursday, November 15.
In the vast sea of American politics, generosity characterizes this pair of political junkies who come from opposite sides of our national politics. One conservative, one liberal, Quatromani and Arledge learned how to have an open political dialogue while building a strong friendship.
Cosponsored by the LBCC Civil Discourse Club and The Village Square’s Respect + Rebellion project, the talk will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. at LBCC’s Russell Tripp Performance Center, 6500 SW Pacific Blvd, Albany. A reception will follow the event in the theater lobby.
Quatromani and Arledge’s story began around the kiddie pool in their neighborhood, and grew into a deep and resilient friendship. The pair will share their strategy to help create a learning, engaging and accepting political environment through engaging in open and honest conversation, rather than argument and debate.
Their talk at LBCC “We Can Do Better! The Power of Using Dialogue in Our Relationships, Communities, and As a Country,” will shed light on our ability to focus on open dialog where we can disagree without anger with those who disagree with us.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit: https://ttvs.org/lbcc-Nov-15
