In a USA Today poll, 95 percent said civility in politics is essential to a healthy democracy. So why is it so hard to solve problems when people disagree?

Learn more—and make your own contribution to civic engagement—when KCPT’s Nick Haines moderates a Consensus-sponsored panel featuring Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II; Reed Chambers, chair of the Tea Party Missouri State Conference; Lana Oleen, former Kansas Senate Majority Leader; and Ronnie Metsker, chairman of the Johnson County Republican Party.

The event also includes findings from focus groups with local residents.
