Event description

Description

You are invited to attend a free Bridging the Red/Blue Chasm Workshop hosted by the Better Angels MN Alliance. The workshop will be moderated by Bill Doherty, Professor at the University of Minnesota and co-founder of Better Angels. Bill has achieved national recognition for his work in bringing people together across various divides.

Bridging the Red/Blue Chasm Workshop

October 26, 6:30pm to 9:30 pm

Eagan Civic (Ice) Arena (Upstairs)

(Observers are also welcome! -- Select "Observer" in the green Register bar)

The workshop brings together a small group of Republicans and Democrats for the purpose of understanding each other beyond stereotypes and to look for common ground. With a carefully crafted structure, the focus is on listening and learning rather than making statements and debating. The idea is not to change minds about political issues but to see one another in a different way.

Please arrive a few minutes early, as we'll need the entire 3 hours for the workshop. You are encouraged to bring water and a light snack for yourself. There is no registration fee and no refreshments are provided.

The workshop will have nearly equal numbers of Red/Blue participants, with a maximum of 8 on each side. Everyone else is welcome to attend as an observer.

Better Angels is a local and national initiative working to dial down heated rhetoric and dissension. Anyone attending as an observer or participant qualifies to join our Better Angels MN Alliance, currently located in Eagan and meeting monthly to discuss future workshop planning and political issues we can agree to work on together as a Red/Blue team.
