      How to Talk Across the Political Divide: Better Angels Skills Workshop

      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, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of the relationship. After a presentation, you will have opportunities to practice listening and speaking skills. You will practice 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. Who can come? Anyone interested in having better conversations with people on the other side of the political aisle. Questions? Please contact Rob Robertson at rrobertson@better-angels.org
