This month's Motion:  Has “Political Correctness” gone too far?

Michael and John will team up against Katherine and Christine in debating for and against the Motion, respectively.

PC is commonly defined as "the avoidance, often considered as taken to extremes, of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against."

Has the PC culture gone "too far" -- in other words, is PC more harmful than helpful to society?

What do you think? Join us for another exciting monthly installation of the Motion Debate!

The debate format will follow the "Intelligence Squared" format.

Once you RSVP, the organizers will send you a link to an external event page to complete the sign up.

Very limited spots available, offered on a first-come basis.
