Truth and Trade Offs in a Democratic Government


Chris Celaya, PhD, University of Denver Center on American Politics
Monday April 19,  5:30 p.m.

In this era of partisanship, what will it take to decrease the divide and bring back productive discussions in politics for our future? Our country is faced with a future of increasingly fast change in a global world of complex relationships and problems. The truth of the future is that we have immediate problems to solve if we are going to exist in a viable form on this planet.

Monday, April 19 at 5:30 p.m., Chris Celaya, a DU postdoctoral researcher at the Center on American Politics, will offer some tools and a perspective on making democracy a vital governing system in American politics.  Chris’s research is based on the intersection of political communication and political psychology.  He has found common themes and understanding in how to have more productive political conversations, increase citizen knowledge and sophisticated thinking. He will give us a pathway where fear, destructive anger and partisanship could be our past, not our future.  New political messaging could be the answer to a productive functioning democracy.

Standing Up For Democracy!



Making Democracy Work

The League of Women Voters of Denver, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization, has fought since the 1930s to improve our systems of government and impact public policies through education and advocacy.

The League is strictly nonpartisan. We neither support nor oppose candidates for office. At the same time, the League is wholeheartedly political and works to influence policy through advocacy. The League:
  • Acts as a force to create positive, lasting change in our community
  • Empowers voters to protect their right to vote
  • Educates citizens and fosters dialogue on pertinent issues - from health care and climate change to openness in government
  • Strives to ensure that all votes are counted and all voices are heard
  • Works to preserve our constitutional rights
  • Partners with others to make democracy work
We believe that sensible, responsible civil discourse and action based on substance rather than partisanship are essential for civic improvement. Our enduring vitality and resonance come from our membership, which is open to all people 16 years of age and older.
