Depolarizing Within – IN PERSON

10/07/2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Host Organization: Braver Angels
State/Region: GA
A free workshop to help you become more aware of your “inner polarizer” and learn methods for disagreeing without contempt and ridicule

About this event

Faith-Sponsored Workshop Overview

For people of faith, civil discourse begins in recognizing the image of God in our conversation partner. Since we are all children of God, our approach should involve mutual respect. Respect, not agreement, is an essential key for a healthy discussion. This workshop addresses how we may inadvertently be complicit in, or possibly even encourage, polarization.

Polarization can be 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 3 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
  • How to constructively intervene in polarizing social conversations with like-minded people.

Who can come? Anyone interested in examining their own inner polarization and learning strategies to disagree without condemning or ridiculing others.

This workshop is a free event brought to you by Braver Angels as part of our mission to depolarize America. Braver Angels is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
