Depolarizing Within – In Person

11/04/2023 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Host Organization: Braver Angels
Partner Org(s): Spark Kindness
State/Region: MA
A free workshop to help you become more aware of your “inner polarizer” and learn methods for disagreeing without contempt and ridicule.
Braver Angels and Spark Kindness are offering two Braver Angels workshops during Kindness Week, a Natick community annual tradition. The workshops will be held each Saturday, Nov 4 and Nov 11. Sign up for one or both!


Depolarizing Within will be Nov 4 and Skills for Bridging the Divide on Nov 11.

About this event

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. We invite you to consider a gift to Braver Angels; all donations are tax deductible.  Your support will allow us to offer more workshops and debates with the ultimate goal of uniting America.
