There’s little doubt that the current election cycle has been particularly marred by harsh rhetoric and a lack of civility. In this episode of “Living Our Mission,” President Jim Harris and Carl Luna share some thoughts on the nation’s current state of civil discourse, and the fundamental importance of respectful dialogue in addressing humanity’s urgent challenges.
Carl Luna is a political commentator and visiting professor whose work aims to promote civic engagement and respectful political discourse. He is the current director of the Institute for Civil Civic Engagement at USD.
Casey Dominguez, also mentioned in the video, is Associate Professor of Political Science, and is leading a campaign to increase the number of registered student voters.
