If you’re tired of all this soul-sapping despair, frustration, and cynicism, you are not alone—and Bill Bradley has a wake-up call for us all. The former senator, author of We Can All Do Better, provokes thought and inspires change with insight on how we can break this cycle and partake in a more participatory form of democracy, reminding us that our common vision of America always has been more powerful than what divides us, and that every generation has, eventually, expanded the franchise; improved the system; and, every now and then, saved the world. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
