In an age of crippling political divisiveness, Allan Katz has a plan. Gather people with opposing viewpoints in a comfortable setting. Share a meal. And rationally, respectfully talk out the most pressing issues of the day.

Katz, a University of Missouri-Kansas City professor and former U.S. ambassador to Portugal, has helped make it work in Florida and California. Now, he introduces the initiative he co-founded — The Village Square — to Kansas City, moderating a discussion among national and local decision-makers that touches on issues ranging from tax incentives to immigration and addresses the cost of impasse arising from incivility.
