a Middlebury College & Common Ground Committee presentation in association with The Christian Science Monitor

Finding Common Ground For Economic Opportunity In The Trump Era .

In a continuing effort to bring light not heat, Common Ground Committee held its eighth public forum and its first college forum, on Wednesday, October 11th at Middlebury College. The timely topic of “Finding Common Ground on Economic Opportunity in the Trump Era, ” featured former Democratic Congressman Barney Frank (MA), and former Republican Governor of New Hampshire and White House Chief of Staff for George H.W. Bush, John Sununu.

The Christian Science Monitor co-presented the event. Gail Chaddock, the Monitor’s former deputy Washington Political Editor, moderated. The forum was part of Middlebury’s “Critical Conversations” initiative, developed in response to a nationally publicized incident in which student protesters shut down a presentation on campus by conservative commentator Charles Murray last March.
