Civic Cocktail offers a lively look at big events and important issues facing the Puget Sound region.
Election season is here and the choices we make will have a big impact on our state and the nation’s future. A panel of regional journalists joins us for a preview of what’s at stake on the November ballot. Plus, we take a deep dive into the politics behind the quest for disability rights in the workplace — an issue often overlooked but one that truly affects all of us.
Session One: Election Preview

- Melissa Santos, AXIOS
- Joseph O'Sullivan, Crosscut
Session Two: Disability Rights in the Workplace
- Chris Brandt, CEO, AtWork!
- Steve Nelson, Disability Specialist, Alaska Airlines

About Civic Cocktail
Civic Cocktail connects elected and community leaders with the public for lively conversations about important issues facing our region. Whether you’re new to the Pacific Northwest, a self-described “civic nerd,” or looking to meet people engaged in their communities, your evening at this beloved program is sure to be friendly, fun, and fascinating. Civic Cocktail’s welcoming and conversational tone is inspired by our Dialogue Across Differences initiative. We hope you can join in person, where the conversation happens over tasty bites and festive libations, but you can still enjoy the experience wherever you are by watching virtually.
