York College to host Democracy Challenge on Sept. 18

September 13, 2019
Democracy Challenge. One Issue, Two Viewpoints, One Solution.

York College of Pennsylvania will host the Democracy Challenge on Wednesday, September 18 from 5:30 - 8 p.m. in the Waldner Performing Arts Center.

To demonstrate how a necessary shift in political discourse and the lost art of compromise is needed to advance our democracy in the face of an ever-changing political stage and conflicting priorities, the York County Economic Alliance is launching the first-ever Democracy Challenge featuring former Governors Ed Rendell (D) and Mark Schweiker (R). The event is sponsored by Comcast and in partnership with York College of Pennsylvania.  

The two former Governors have accepted the challenges to debate, as a master clock ticks down 60 minutes, and attempt to reach compromise on one public policy issue -- immigration in Pennsylvania.
