National Online Depolarizing Within (Standard) Workshop
August 8 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
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 helps participants become more aware of their own “inner polarizer.” It teaches how to be critical without demonizing, dismissing, or stereotyping large swaths of the population. And it offers 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.
The “standard” version of the DW workshop lasts 3 hours and includes both learning and practicing skills (as opposed to the “hybrid” version which consists of pre-learning followed by 2 hours of skills practice).
Who can come? Anyone interested in examining their own inner polarization.
