What we're about

Politics are...intense right now. If you are interested in *talking and listening* instead of yelling at and demonizing each other over social media, this group is for you!

The Burke-Paine Society (BPS) holds monthly bipartisan "salon-style" gatherings to help people reconnect with friends and family across the aisle and learn new perspectives.

Join us in rebuilding trust, redefining our national identity, and igniting a political renaissance -- rooted in our core values of inclusiveness, empathy, intellectual curiosity, and humility.

Join us for a vigorous and intelligent discussion while practicing active and courageous listening. All are welcome to attend and participate fully. We are a diverse group of adults who enjoy worthwhile conversations.

LOCATION: During Covid, we are using Zoom to connect. You will receive Zoom details when you RSVP. Please plan to use your camera - we cannot admit off-camera participants. We also do not allow recording of our sessions so we can foster comfort and community.
