Skills For Conversations About Public Policy & Race – IN PERSON

Host Organization: Other
Partner Org(s): Yavapai College OLLI
State/Region: AZ

Restricted Attendance: Members of Yavapai College OLLI
Local Focus: Prescott, AZ

For Reds, Blues, and Others

Improve skills for listening to others and expressing your own views on race leading to more productive conversations.

Note: This event is to be attended in person.

The red/blue divide makes it hard for Americans of all races to reason together and find common ground on important policy issues related to race. Braver Angels is uniquely positioned to help address this problem.

In this workshop you will learn skills for having more productive conversations about contentious policy issues related to race, such as affirmative action, policing, removing statues, and reparations.

The workshop also helps conservatives and liberals understand core values and principles of those who differ from them on public policy issues connected to race in America. The workshop is for those who:

  • Want to learn to communicate more effectively about race and public policy with people who differ from them politically
  • Believe in the equal worth and dignity of persons of all races
  • Are prepared to listen, learn, and practice skills rather than criticize, instruct, or try to enlighten participants with different views

There are many kinds of workshops dealing with race. Note that Braver Angels focuses on divisions over public policy. This workshop is not an in-depth discussion of race relations and racial identity in America.

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.
