Being Red in a Blue Environment – IN PERSON

June 22 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT

Host Organization: Braver Angels
State/Region: VT

Learn safe and effective ways to communicate conservative values and beliefs in environments where liberal ideas are assumed to be correct.

About this event

Focus of the workshop

This free workshop is for political conservatives who are surrounded by liberals 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 conservative values and beliefs in environments where liberal ideas are assumed to be correct—and where conservative people may be seen as ignorant, misguided, or even immoral. Although there will be examples of the challenges you may face with liberals 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?”

Workshop Goals

  • Learn new strategies for handling the challenge of being a political minority in a mostly liberal environment.
  • Develop new skills for communicating conservatives values and beliefs in a way that others might hear.
  • Feel more confident as a conservative in environments where everyone else is trying to make you blue.
