The "Democracy in America" series is partnering with Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts to provide an introduction to Pennsylvania's Common Pleas and Magisterial Courts. The program will describe the impact Common Pleas and Magisterial justices have on the lives of Pennsylvanians as well as provide valuable information on evaluating judicial candidates prior to the November elections.

Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts ("PMC"), a nonpartisan nonprofit, envisions a Pennsylvania judicial system in which everyone who participates is assured impartiality, fairness, accessibility and respect.

The "Democracy in America" series is a project of the Mt. Lebanon Public Library, the Denis Theater, and is co-sponsored by LWVPGH.

Two separate, free Braver Angels workshops will be held simultaneously on Monday, October 18, 7 – 9:00 pm.

There's a lot of stress these days among family members and friends who are divided politically, and the current polarized public conversation doesn't help. This RED workshop is for red-leaning folks (i.e, people who lean conservative philosophically or tend to vote for Republicans) who are interested in having better conversations with people on the other side of the political aisle. You will learn and practice skills for having respectful conversations that clarify differences, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of the relationship.

LWVPGH is a cosponsor of this event.
