Join us for a bipartisan discussion on the state of politics in North Carolina and how we can work towards “Finding Common Ground in a Polarized World” with state leaders John Hood and Leslie Winner. The discussion will be moderated by Duke Professor of Public Policy and Associate Dean for Strategy and Engagement Frederick “Fritz” Mayer.
Leslie Winner, a Democrat and former NC state senator, was the former executive director of the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation and past recipient of the Governor’s Order of Long Leaf Pine award for outstanding service. John Hood, a conservative and founder of the John Locke Foundation, is president of the John William Pope Foundation and serves as a weekly panelist on the political talk show “NC SPIN.”
These leaders co-chair the North Carolina Leadership Forum (NCLF), which brings together NC civic, business, and political leaders from across the political spectrum to engage in thoughtful dialogue and attempt to find common ground on political issues. Hosted at the Sanford School for Public Policy, the NCLF has been examining questions like minimum wage over the past year.

Where: Pink Parlor Room in the East Duke Building
112 Campus Dr, Durham, NC 27708
