Roxanne Qualls and Bill Seitz hug after the first event.
The first event was a huge success with nearly 200 people enjoying a spirited and informative discussion between Vice-Mayor Roxanne Qualls and State Senator Bill Seitz. We hope you will join us for the second Side-by-Side.
It is being co-sponsored by the Hamilton County Republican Party, the Hamilton County Democratic Party, the Charter Committee of Cincinnati, The Cincinnatus Association, The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, the YWCA and the League of Women Voters.  WCET and WVXU are media partners.  
The series will offer an antidote to the contentious and sometimes toxic national political rhetoric that is serving to polarize our society by inviting local political leaders to share their reflections on the people and experiences that helped to form the political beliefs and positions they hold today.
We believe we are less likely to demonize people we know personally, and are pleased to offer this opportunity to get behind the party platforms and political personas of election campaigns and get to know our public officials on a more personal level.
We thank The Seasongood Good Government Foundation and the Cincinnati Bar Foundation for their financial support of the Beyond Civility initiative.
