Donna Brazile and Ana Navarro to speak at UW-Stevens Point

Donna Brazile, former chair of the Democratic Party, and Republican strategist Ana Navarro will come to UW-Stevens Point, April 8, for a conversation moderated by Wisconsin Public Radio’s Rob Mentzer. The event, titled The Health of American Democracy in a Polarized World, is sponsored by the Tommy G. Thompson Center on Public Leadership and is presented by the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service (WIPPS) and UW-Stevens Point.

With years of political expertise and media experience under their belts, Brazile and Navarro are seasoned analysts and are among the best political commentators on television today.  Despite hailing from opposing political parties, these pundits join forces to speak truth to power and provide honest, blunt, and humorous commentary on the American political landscape.

“In spite of the growing polarization in the country, people really do want to be able to engage in civil, constructive conversations with those on the other side of the political spectrum,” said Eric Giordano, WIPPS executive director. “Donna Brazile and Ana Navarro are prominent figures in the Democratic and Republican parties, respectively, but their easy-going, respectful rapport can serve as a model for all of us.”

In addition to regular appearances on CNN and Good Morning America, Brazile was a commentator for Fox News from 2019-2021. Also, a contributor to CNN, Navarro has appeared frequently on Meet the Press and hosted The View.

The event is being held in the Laird Room at the Dreyfus University Center, 1015 Reserve St., Stevens Point, April 8 at 7 p.m. Attendees may also access the event via Zoom by registering here.
