Democrats and Republicans came together to talk through tough issues for an afternoon in Charlotte.
Mayor Pro Tem Julie Eiselt was involved in the bi-partisan event organized through Better Angels.
Better Angels is a citizen movement working to help Americans “break through the acrimony and distrust to find ways to talk with each other.”
Representatives from the Muslim, Jewish, African-American, LGBT, service members and both Democrats and Republicans were present at the event and encouraged to talk together about divisive issues in the community.
