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.

After a year in Congress, U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal pulls no punches when talking Trump. She tells host Joni Balter much of the country agrees a permanent solution is needed on DACA. The 7th District Democrat also warns of a constitutional crisis if special counsel Robert Mueller is fired. Plus, she says adding a citizenship question to the census will backfire on this administration. And, a diverse panel discusses gun rights, restrictions and responsibility. Tahoma High School student activist Rhiannon Rasaretnam shares why she's so passionate about the issue. Patty Hayes, director of Public Health - Seattle & King County, says locking up a gun isn't enough. Alliance for Gun Responsibility CEO Renee Hopkins lost her brother to gun violence and says elected officials do not reflect the will of the people. Finally, State Sen. Phil Fortunato, a gun owner, challenged the audience with: "What would you do if someone walked in the door right now and started shooting?"
