Join the Institute for Comparative and Regional Studies (ICRS) for a special Majlis discussion with Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser on political divisions in the United States following last week's attack on the U.S. capitol building.

As we begin a new chapter in U.S. history, we must move forward based on a shared understanding of the American project of self-government and what it means to work towards a more perfect union. With a commitment to dialogue, we must redouble our efforts to listen to another, lead with empathy, and work together to bind up our nation’s wounds. Together, we must begin the work of repairing, renewing, and rebuilding our institutions.

Phil Weiser is the 39th Attorney General of Colorado. As the state’s chief legal officer, Attorney General Weiser is committed to protecting the people of Colorado, defending the rule of law, and building a Department of Law that serves all Coloradans effectively. Public Service is one of Weiser’s core values.
