Unplugged Conversations are candid conversations hosted by bona fide Civic Superheroes who come prepared to share and exchange knowledge with the CU community.
Civic Superheroes are people who have made major contributions to our democracy in one way or another—including elected officials, civil servants, democracy entrepreneurs, community builders, young civic leaders, political theorists, and more.
During each Unplugged Conversation, the host will share and discuss deeply empowering knowledge and advice that they are confident community members won't discover on their own.
Unplugged Conversations are genuine knowledge exchanges—with all participants including the host asking questions, sharing their thoughts and reactions, and learning from and with each other.
Civic superheroes who have previously spoken with our community include Valerie Jarrett, Shavar Jeffries, Peter Block, Lawrence Lessig, Audrey Tang, Katie Fahey, Tom Steyer, and Brian McClendon.
