Rural/Urban Workshop – Fairmont, WV

December 3 @ 11:30 am - 5:30 pm EST

Host Organization: Braver Angels - We The People Project
State: WV

Local Focus: Rural West Virginia, and Urban, metro Washington, DC

Join us for a workshop that brings together rural West Virginians and urban DC-area residents for moderated activities and structured discussions that reduce stereotyped thinking, clarify disagreements, build relationships, and find common ground through listening and learning rather than declaring and debating.

The goals of the workshop are:

  • To better understand the experiences and beliefs of people living in a different environment and community from us.
  • To seek out areas of common ground in addition to acknowledging and respecting differences.
  • To gain insights that might help to heal the increasing polarization in our nation.

This workshop is organized by the We The People project of Braver Angels, with support from the West Virginia and metropolitan DC-area Braver Angels alliances.

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