Event description

Description

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 a Better Angels Skills Workshop to learn skills for having respectful conversations that clarify differences in political perspective, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of the relationship. This is an interactive workshop where you will have an opportunity to role-play potentially challenging conversations and practice conflict transformation strategies.

Who can come? Anyone interested in having better conversations with people on the other side of the political aisle.

Questions? Contact Sarah Yue at alanandsarah@gmail.com

About Better Angels:

Launched in 2016, Better Angels (www.better-angels.org) is a bipartisan citizen’s movement to unify our divided nation. By bringing red and blue Americans together into a working alliance, we’re building new ways to talk to one another, participate together in public life, and influence the direction of the nation.

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory…will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.

– Abraham Lincoln, 1861
