Being Blue in a Red Environment
May 22 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT
Restricted Attendance: Braver Angels members
Learn safe and effective ways to communicate liberal values and beliefs in environments where conservative ideas are assumed to be correct.
Focus of the workshop: This workshop is for political liberals who are surrounded by conservatives in key areas of life like work, family, social circle, religion, or community.
This free 3-hour on-line workshop is for political progressives, liberals or any blue-leaning individuals who are surrounded by conservatives in key areas of life like work, family, social circle, religion, or community. The idea for the workshop came from conversations with individuals who said they are looking for safe and effective ways to communicate their liberal values and beliefs in environments where conservative ideas are assumed to be correct—and where more liberal people may be seen as ignorant, misguided, or even immoral. Although there will be examples of the challenges you may face with conservatives in your world, this will be a “no whining” zone. We will focus on the question, “What can I do?” rather than “Aren’t they awful?”
- Learn new strategies for handling the challenge of being a political minority in a mostly conservative environment.
- Develop new skills for communicating liberal values and beliefs in a way that others might hear.
- Feel more confident as a liberal in environments where everyone else is trying to make you red.
