The National Issues Forums network and the Kettering Foundation are moving forward with the major initiative, Hidden Common Ground, spearheaded by Public Agenda and USA TODAY to examine what Americans have to say about some of the most urgent concerns facing us in the coming election year.
You can watch a one hour webinar below (30 minutes of presentations and 30 minutes of questions and answers) that was recorded on January 9, 2020. The webinar includes information about the new issue guide about health care costs, titled Health Care: How Can We Bring Costs Down While Getting the Care We Need? and some tips and suggestions for using it in forums.
The webinar presenters include Darla Minnich, Brad Rourke, Jean Johnson, and Kara Dillard.
People around the country are invited to hold forums using this new issue guide in their communities between now and March 13, 2020 and to submit post-forum questionnaires to be used in follow up reporting by Public Agenda and USA TODAY.
Additionally, people are welcome to join in one of the online forums (Common Ground for Action) scheduled for February 6, 8, 15, and March 13. Click here to see the schedule, and click on any of the online forums for a link to register to participate.
