Please Join Me Tuesday Night in Los Angeles

Lakers-Suns game 4? Who cares? OK, I care, but it won't be nearly as exciting as the Zocalo Public Square event I'll be moderating tonight (Tuesday, May 25) at 7:30 p.m. at the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy in downtown LA (111 N. Central). The event is free, as are the drinks at the post-event reception.

The question of the evening: "Which Is More Democratic -- Zurich or LA?" is a jumping off point to a discussion of a comparison between the Swiss system of direct democracy and the California version. We have a lot to learn from the Swiss; two Angeleno leaders -- former chamber of commerce chief George Kieffer and California Common Cause president Kathy Feng -- will join a conversation that includes two visitors from Europe: Swiss Parliament member Andreas Gross (who represents Zurich) and Initiative & Referendum Institute Europe president Bruno Kaufmann.

You can learn more and reserve a seat here.
