Margaret White, executive director of No Labels, a women-ed organization that calls itself as a bipartisan problem-solving organization, will hold a book talk Friday, Dec. 6, at Urban Farmer in downtown Denver.
No Labels bills itself as “a ground breaking movement led by Americans who embrace the new politics of problem solving and are collaborating to find common-sense, non-partisan solutions to our toughest challenges.”
White is also co-author of The Ultimate Guide to the 2020 Election – a book focused on how bipartisan conversations and solutions are important in Colorado.
The Politics of Problem Solving event will be held on Friday, Dec. 6, from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. at Urban Farmer at 1659 Wazee Street in Denver.
White will give a brief talk about how both parties can bridge the political gap in Washington, even though partisanship seems to be at an all-time high.
“That’s really why we put this book out there, kind of as a guide to start having some of those conversations and to start invoking some of those questions – how do we get back to constructive conversations versus just the breakdown of divisive, almost fighting at the dinner table around politics?” White said of talking to family and friends about politics during the holidays.
“What we really try to tackle in the book is really kind of breaking down where are,” White added. “Our democracy has been so disrupted, the incentives are just so backwards and right now the loudest voices are the ones that are being heard the most and are the most organized.”
Through the work of No Labels, members of Congress from both parties are meeting to talk about solutions on drug prices, trade and making government work for the people.
“We’re right here in the middle of a very contentious primary on top of the impeachment hearings so what we’re looking to do is bridge that divide and what No Labels has been doing over the last decade since 2010 when we launched is building allies in Congress and building citizens and voters across this country who do believe in our political system and our two parties and that they can work and should work,” White said.
White will also discuss how her new book will help gives a voice to a silent majority that wants to get things done and provide an unbiased education on the true nature of the problems America faces on several key issues. White will speak on the issues and take questions.
Refreshments will be provided.
