About this Event

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 workshop 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.

Workshop Format:

The 2.5 - 3 hour workshop is offered online over Zoom.

Who can come?

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

Questions?

Contact Chris Cook at 1cdc1@comcast.net.

** This event is open to the media upon approval.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan grassroots political organization open to men and women. It encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. The LWV neither supports nor opposes any political party or candidate for elective office, but does encourage its members as individuals to take part fully in the political process. We are pleased to be partnering with the Snohomish County League.

Braver Angels is a bi-partisan national non-profit movement started in 2016 to help liberals and conservatives recognize our shared humanity - even in moments of fierce conflict. We bring liberals and conservatives together at the grassroots level and provide workshops and resources to help Americans understand each other beyond stereotypes, build trust and form community alliances.
