On October 11th, 2017, the Northport High School Chapter of Next Generation Politics hosted a Roundtable Discussion, covering issues ranging from the NFL ‘Take a Knee’ protests to gun control. Participants were each given a thirty second block to state their personal views, followed by a group discussion shortly after. Members found many areas of agreement in both topics, but also several to disagree over. More importantly, however, was that members learned the importance of civilly sharing conflicting ideas, especially in such a tumultuous political climate.
