Depolarizing Within

October 3 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT

Host Organization: Sonoma County Braver Angels
Partner Org(s): Bnai Israel Social Action Committee
State: CA

Local Focus: Petaluma, CA

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: In Person.

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

** This event is open to the media upon approval. Media contact: Ciaran O’Connor,
