NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – National Governors Association (NGA) Chair Utah Gov. Spencer Cox and Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee will host the next convening in a series of bipartisan events in support of Gov. Cox’s NGA Chair’s Initiative: Disagree Better.

Launched in July, Disagree Better is a yearlong initiative to help Americans bridge the partisan divide. Through public debates, service projects, public service announcements and a variety of other tactics, Disagree Better will model a more positive and optimistic way of working through our problems.

Centered on the theme of building dialogue skills and fostering positive contact, the Nashville event will feature panel discussions with bipartisan experts, a practical application of those topics through a service project and keynote addresses from Moral Courage College Founder and CEO Irshad Manji and Citizen University Co-Founder and CEO Eric Liu.
