In an age when we seem to be surrounded by complicated and contentious issues, too often we’re resigned to agree-to-disagree. Where Do We Go from Here?is a monthly get-together at the SDPB Black Hills Bureau to share thoughts on big questions of local and national concern, listen to dissenting points of view, and propose solutions. 

Chuck Parkinson is the host and moderator. He is a native of western South Dakota, and after a career in several congressional and committee offices in Washington D.C., Chuck and his wife Suzanne returned to Rapid City. Having observed national political polarization close-up, Chuck remains active in public issues, advocating for open discussion and transparency. He adds, “Civil and honest discussion AND listening, promotes understanding and opens the door to viable solutions.”
