Join us for an evening with Melissa Michelson, Professor of Political Science at Menlo College, to learn about her ground-breaking research on changing attitudes toward LGBT rights. Conducting randomized experiments around the nation, Michelson and her research partner, Brian Harrison, were able to develop a blueprint for thinking about how to bring disparate groups together over contentious political issues. The results of their study was just published by Oxford University Press in a new book, Listen, We Need to Talk: How to Change Attitudes About LGBT Rights.
