The art of conversation is lost, the practice of compromise has eroded how can we as a society embrace better conversations? Is our current state our new normal, or can we find a role or need for the common good?

Join us for lunchtime Better Conversations at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum! The program will begin with a Slice of History about how a 350-person Task Force built consensus through conversations to create the Memorial and Museum. Then grab a slice of pizza and join this special Better Conversation hosted by Mike Turpen and Burns Hargis – past Memorial Chairmen, two great Oklahomans, historians and civic leaders – as we discuss what happens to our civic life when we are unable to have conversations.

Civic Season is a new summer tradition taking place across the nation from Juneteenth to July 4th for individuals of all generations to explore what you stand for, connect with others and shape the future of our country. The Memorial and Museum created three weeks of mission-focused Better Conversations looking at issues facing our country and what we can do about it! It causes us all to look at our own responsibility this Civic Season.

This is the second of a three-part Better Conversations series for #CivicSeason. Look for our next topic on July 2.

Participation is Free. Lunch is on us. Pre-register to guarantee a spot!
