Better Angels Workshops
How to Talk Across the Political Divide
What: Political divisions have created a lot of stress these days among friends, in the workplace and even within families. The current polarized public conversation doesn't help. Please join us for a Better Angels Skills Workshop to learn techniques and methods for having respectful conversations that clarify differences, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of our relationships.
Following a presentation by trained moderators, you will have an opportunity to practice these conversation skills 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.
