Location: Online

This event will be presented via Zoom.
All Sphere Summit alumni and interested educators for grades 5–12 are eligible to attend.

American politics has moved beyond merely Team Blue and Team Red, or even tribal affiliations, and into an era of political sectarianism. In this webinar, the Cato Institute’s Gene Healy will discuss how polarization has taken on an element of the religious, the role of the executive branch in exacerbating this trend, and what can be done to start to reverse this tide.
