Today and tomorrow, from 4 to 6:30 p.m., 150 UA students will argue and deliberate on topics they've researched from the war in Iraq to student debt. If you love to argue and have a hankering to join in, the public is invited to participate in other forums that include discussions and presentations on universal healthcare, global warming, immigration and the war. 

The United We Argue: Doing Democracy Forum takes place today from 4 to 6:30 p.m. in the Modern Languages Building in Rooms 204, 311, and 312; and tomorrow in Psychology Building 205, 207, and 306. 

According to the PR:

This deliberative forum provides students in writing courses with an opportunity to examine the issues that are at the center of current political campaigns.  The number of younger voters who are stepping up to vote in the current primaries has more than doubled since the last presidential primaries  College-aged voters could be decisive in the upcoming presidential election.  This forum provides an opportunity to hear what those voters are thinking.  Each panel will feature three to four speakers and will include ample time for follow up discussions. 

Registration begins at 3:30 today in the main staircase of the Modern Languages Building and 5:30 tomorrow in the courtyard of the Psychology Building.

 

The students come from the writing classes of Adrienne Crump, Jennifer Haley, Marissa Juarez, Faith Kurtyka, Jessica Shumake, and Professor Thomas Miller. For more info, call Prof. Miller at 307-5482 or tpm@u.arizona.edu.
