DEPOLARIZING THE POLITICS WITHIN: BECOMING A BRAVER ANGEL IN YOUR OWN WORLD

DEPOLARIZING THE POLITICS WITHIN: BECOMING A BRAVER ANGEL IN YOUR OWN WORLD

Much of today’s epidemic of toxic 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. How we talk among ourselves about "them" fuels fires that threaten our democracy.This free, 2-hour workshop (plus a 40-minute online self-study course) will help participants become more aware of their own "inner polarizer." It teaches how to be critical without demonizing, dismissing, or stereotyping large parts of the population. And it offers strategies for intervening constructively in social conversations with like-minded friends when these conversations veer into contempt and ridicule for people who hold other political views. This online Braver Angels Workshop has two parts. Register now to reserve a space. Co-sponsored by Womanspace of Rockford and the Rockford Public Library.Questions?
