Event Description:

Take Part in the Presidential Debate:

Now you can take part in the “give-and-take” of the Final Presidential Debate.

#TextTalk2016 will be a real-time, text-enabled, face-to-face conversation all over the world.
We’ll gather in small groups prior to the debate. Each group receives a series of text messages to guide you through a conversation on the top issues of this election.


How the Process Works 

>> ​
Participants form into groups of 3-4 people and receive a welcome text, followed by dialogue & polling questions about the campaign, such as “How likely are you to vote this November? A) Very likely, B) Somewhat likely, C) Not likely”.

​>> Each participant texts in a response and receives a text with the next question.

​>> Participants also get texts with links that show the aggregated results of the polling in real time.

​>> Guidelines include: “1. Listen w/ respect, 2. It's OK to disagree but don't make it personal, 3. What’s said here stays here.

>> ​Responses to the questions will be recorded anonymously.

Location: Engelman Recital Hall. 55 Lexington Avenue.

Refreshments served.
