About Civic CocktailCitizen University TV

Civic Cocktail - presented by Seattle Channel and Seattle CityClub - offers a night of networking, civic conversation, Tom Douglas appetizers and a no-host bar. 



Wed., Nov. 4 | 6 p.m.

Join us November 4 for our final Civic Cocktail of 2020! We begin with former Republican WA Attorney General Rob McKenna. Joining him is a prominent Democrat (soon to be announced), and together they'll discuss the election results from the night before. Will there be a clear mandate? Where do the parties go from here? How might they work together after this long election season?

In our second segment, we'll focus on the positive in a conversation with Pastor Don Mackenzie and Imam Jamal Rahman, from the Interfaith Amigos. These men come from different faiths but work together in friendship and goodwill in our community. They'll offer healing thoughts as we continue to navigate these challenging times. Join us for this conversation to kick off your holiday season.

Civic Cocktail: Combating White Supremacy + The Art of Racing in the Rain
Civic Cocktail: Combating White Supremacy + The Art of Racing in the Rain

Deadly violence linked to white supremacy is on the rise in this country. King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg tells host Joni Balter that much of this violence involves white males who are alienated and angry. University of Washington political science professor Christopher Sebastian Parker adds, "...it removes all doubt of the fact that this is a racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic country, period." In the second half, Garth Stein - best-selling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain - shares his thoughts about the book being adapted for the big screen and whether Hollywood got it right. Stein also talks about the inspiration behind the book and reveals tidbits about his next novel, A Couple of Old Birds, set in Seattle and influenced by his 89-year-old mother.
