Depolarizing Within For Teens and Young Adults

02/27/2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm PST

Host Organization: Braver Angels OC/South Bay Alliance
State/Region: CA

Restricted Attendance: The event is open to the public, but the event is specifically for teenagers and young adults to about age 24.

As we approach voting age, teenagers become increasingly aware of the political world around us. We may find ourselves pulled into fiery debates in classrooms or Instagram comment sections. Fighting for your beliefs is a noble cause, but how can this fight lead to progress and unity instead of animosity and vitriol? How can we avoid a culture among young people of harsh social pressure to support causes unquestioningly?

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 three hour 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 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.

See you there!
