With this thoughtful and thought-provoking discussion, we can come together and discover unexpected yet real solutions.

Description: Our prisons are overcrowded with low-level offenders, but from Wall Street to the heights of government, massive scandals and corruption go on without end. How do we bring justice and accountability back to a broken and distrusted system?

Description: Immigrants are vital to our national character. They are not only us, but our families and our forebears. Yet, with broken rules and a broken budget, something has to give. How do we remain a welcoming and international country while balancing the needs of our people and strains on our infrastructure? Problems and solutions debated and discussed.
