What we're about

Civilized Conversation seeks to revive the lost art of face-to-face thoughtful conversation. We're a diverse group of people from different parts of the political spectrum and varying backgrounds. Yet, we believe that it is possible to discuss controversial topics honestly and respectfully, as well as passionately.

We meet every Monday evening at the same time and place (7pm, at a Panera Café 5620 Balboa Ave.) to discuss a pre-set topic that is usually related to politics or public affairs. Some topics are about religion, history, world politics, or even philosophy or science. Our format is an informal roundtable discussion by all present, with a moderator, DavidG.

Note: The Friday before each meeting, DavidG does a post on the group's main website that gives information about the topic and links to optional background readings. Main website:

Come join us any Monday night!
