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: City Hall in Motion & #MeToo
Civic Cocktail: City Hall in Motion & #MeToo
11/1/201757:37

Amidst the churn at City Hall, Tim Burgess says he's no caretaker mayor. The outgoing city councilmember discusses his priorities during his brief stint as interim mayor with host Joni Balter. He weighs in on the progress of police reform, his opposition to a proposed business tax to fight homelessness, and the celebrity-fueled campaign for a Sodo Arena. Plus, he offers advice for his successor on the City Council. Then, a panel discussion addresses the significance of the #MeToo movement and navigating sexual harassment in the workplace and on campus. Burgess joins Mona Locke, former first lady of Washington, and Alisa Kessel, a professor of politics and government at the University of Puget Sound. Locke discusses why she broke her silence last year and candidly shared her personal experiences with sexual harassment. While the #MeToo social media campaign revealed how widespread sexual assault and harassment really are, what's next? Have we reached a tipping point? Will behavior change?
