Joan Blades & John Gable, Bringing Civil Conversations to Schools

Liberal activist Joan Blades co-founded MoveOn.org, Moms Rising.org and Living Room Conversations.org, to provide a guide for meaningful conversations between people with different views. Now, she has teamed up with Republican John Gable on an initiative called AllSides for Schools to bring civilized conversations about controversial topics to the classroom. We talk about why students need these tools now and what these conversations were like in high school for Joan and John. Listen to our conversation on iTunes or NPR One.
