Hammer Forum

In Search of the Center

Wednesday Sep 12, 2012 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM This is a past program

In a political climate charged with fierce partisanship and negative rhetoric, Democratic strategist and former Clinton White House counsel Lanny Davis and former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele discuss strategies for bridging the red-blue divide. Motivated by a desire for bipartisanship and civility, Davis and Steele founded Purple Nation Solutions, a D.C.-based government affairs, legal crisis management, and strategic communications firm.

This ongoing series of timely, thought-provoking events addresses current social and political issues.
Hammer Forum is moderated by Ian Masters, journalist, author, screenwriter, documentary filmmaker, and host of the radio programs Background Briefing, Sundays at 11AM, and The Daily Briefing, Monday through Thursday at 5PM, on KPFK 90.7 FM.

Hammer Forum is made possible in part by Bronya and Andrew Galef. 

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA.

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, the Simms/Mann Family Foundation, The Brotman Foundation of California, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, and all Hammer members.
