KUOW is doing a series of person-to-person conversation events we call 'Ask A...'
The concept is simple: Get eight people from a group that’s in the news and set up conversations with eight people who want to know more about the group. They each have one-to-one conversations until all have met. Then we have a group discussion and continue the conversations over a meal.
It's a way to break out of our echo chambers and make connections with others in our community.
What if you lived in a place where people often looked at you with suspicion? How would you get past that — the stares, the mistrust, or worse?
