Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue. Free with registration.

Civics, Community, Media Library

Ray Suarez is senior correspondent for PBS’s The NewsHour and author of The Holy Vote: The Politics of Faith in America, which examines the way Americans worship, how organized religion and politics intersect in America, and how this powerful collision is transforming the current and future American mind-set. Exploring the advent of political polarization and how it is profoundly changing the way in which we live our lives, Suarez reveals the attitudes and beliefs of the people behind the voting numbers, the places in which these new beliefs are being born, and how the political divide is manifesting itself across the country. The result: a greater understanding of how Americans believe, and how this belief structure fuels the debates that dominate the issues on our evening news. Presented by Seattle University as part of its Faith & Values in the Public Square Lecture series.
