Depolarizing Within – Standard (Other)

06/21/2021 @ 6:30 pm - 9:15 pm EDT

Partner Org(s): The Black Political Empowerment Project (B-PEP), Carnegie Libraries of Pittsburgh, The Center for Loving Kindness of the JCC PGH, Christian Associates of Southwest PA, Emmanuel Reformed Church of the United Church of Christ, Export PA, Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh – Community Relations Council, The League of Women Voters of Greater Pittsburgh, YWCA of Greater Pittsburgh
State/Region: PA

Local Focus: Pittsburgh, PA

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!
