Discuss this hot topic with community members. Held in partnership with NAU’s Department of Philosophy in the Public Interest.
Hot Topics Café is a program that creates a forum for civil discourse about matters of significance to our communities. Unbiased information sheets present arguments on competing sides of a question, and give legislative histories or other relevant factual data. Members of the community are then invited to voice their views on the topic. Participants learn about the issues, and about alternative viewpoints in the community. Hot Topics Café is non partisan, and we do not endorse a position with respect to any issue discussed. We do not aim to achieve consensus or resolve issues, and this is one of the things that makes Hot Topics Cafés unique among programs designed to foster civil discourse.
