Depolarizing Within: A Better Angels Workshop - Seymour

Friday, February 21, 2020

Much of today’s epidemic of toxic polarization is driven by talking to like-minded people. Too often we stereotype, dismiss, or ridicule others who support another political party. Although political polarization has always been around, people today on the “other side” have become not just strangers but enemies. How we talk among ourselves fuels fires that threaten our democracy. What if we learn the discipline of non-polarizing attitudes and words about the political “Other” with whom we do share a national past and future? Min: 6/ Max: 20. Facilitator: Cathy Cole, Better Angels
