We The People featuring
Representative Tom Cole (R-OK)
and The Atlantic's Yoni Appelbaum

September 22, 2016
Washington, DC

Representative Tom Cole (R-OK) has emerged as a voice of reason in explaining party views on hotly contested issues and policy initiatives. Kicking off The Atlantic’s We The People series, Rep. Cole joined Yoni Appelbaum for a fireside chat to discuss the best path forward for pragmatic governing and how Congress can function among the hyperbole and hyper-partisanship defining modern politics.

The Atlantic’s We The People series of events is exclusively underwritten by the American Federation of Teachers.
