Seeking Common Ground: Looking Past the Rural-Urban Divide

June 3, 2021 | 9:00 a.m. | Virtual Event

Online, statewide & beyond

National political discourse has amplified a conflict between rural and urban interests, culture, and values that has resulted in a bifurcated reality: two “bubbles” of experience whose paths do not often cross in the media nor in our daily lives. This session will shed light on the potential common interests in these disparate experiences, toward consensus about what the future could be. This program is supported by a Public Program Grant from Oregon Humanities.
