Depolarizing Within – Standard Workshop

Co-sponsored by the following organizations:

  • Black Political Empowerment Project (B-PEP)
  • Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (CLP)
  • Casa San Jose
  • Center for Loving Kindness of the JCC PGH
  • Christian Associates of Southwest PA

Much of today’s polarization is driven by how we talk with like-minded people about those on the other side. Too often, we stereotype, dismiss, or ridicule our fellow citizens who support the other political party, its leaders, and its policies.

This free 2.5 to 3 hour workshop is offered online over Zoom and teaches participants:

  • How to be more aware of their own "inner polarizer"
  • How to be critical without demonizing, dismissing or stereotyping large swaths of the population
  • Strategies for intervening constructively in social conversations with like-minded peers when these conversations veer into contempt and ridicule for people who hold other political views.

Who can come? Anyone interested in examining their own inner polarization and learning strategies to disagree without condemning or ridiculing others.
