- Talking Across the Political Divide
December 14, 2019
12:00 pm - 2:30 pm
- There's a lot of stress these days among family members and friends who are divided politically, and the current polarized public conversation doesn't help. Please join us for the Better Angels Skills Workshop to learn skills for having respectful conversations that clarify differences, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of the relationship.
After a presentation, you will have an opportunity to practice conversation skills. You will practice in a pair with someone of your same political persuasion—red or blue. “Reds” lean conservative and tend to vote Republican. “Blues” lean liberal and tend to vote Democratic. If you fall somewhere in the middle, you can choose a side for purposes of practicing the skills.
Who can come? Anyone interested in having better conversations with people on the other side of the political aisle. Attendance will be capped at 50 people to make sure that the workshop is as effective as it can be.
