Better Angels Skills Workshop: How to Speak and Listen Across the Political Divide

Tuesday, November 27, 2018

5:45 PM - 8:30 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 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 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.

Questions? Please contact Rob Robertson.

Free & open to the public.
