Democrats Abroad Switzerland is very excited to welcome back Alexandra Cirone, PhD, to speak to us about the state of US politics in a post-truth world!
What are we to do in a political environment where objective facts are ignored in favor of appeals to emotional or personal beliefs? Where fear trumps fact? Who can we trust in a world where partisanship has become so strong that facts are sacrificed to political expediency and the media has sacrificed truth in favor of balance?
If these questions trouble you, then please join us via Zoom on Thursday, January 28th at 7 PM.
All are welcome to attend, but DA Switzerland would gladly accept donations from American citizens in attendance in support of this event and our voter outreach and activism efforts.
