April 4th Wine, Cheese & Politics featuring Futurist David Houle on “The Future of Political Parties”

David HouleJoin us at the Bayfront Community Center on Tuesday, April 4th at 6:30 p.m as we welcome David Houle, a globally recognized futurist, columnist, international speaker and Co-Author of This Spaceship Earth and Co-Founder of ThisSpaceShipEarth.org.

David will speak about the future of our two-party system, asking the question, “Was the 2016 election the beginning of the end of the two-party system?” We hear murmurings already of Progressives forming their own party and might there be other emerging parties? If this is inevitable, how will that change the political landscape in the United States? David will delve into these ideas and let us know what he thinks is coming.

He writes, “The huge issues of today; climate change, racism, immigration, wealth inequality, transformative technological breakthroughs and extreme poverty cannot be truly solved by looking through the lens an out of date duality (referring to a two-party system)”. Don’t miss this opportunity to be challenged as Democrats!

Beer, wine, soft drinks, and light bites will be served. The $25 / $28 admission fee will cover the rental cost of the venue, food and beverages, and will allow the Club to comp. students and other deserving members of our community.
