Civil Discourse in a Polarized Environment: our citizen imperative

“Our solutions are not under a dome…” we all need to step up.

This session will look at how we can weave the fabric of civil political discourse back together. The fabric has been fraying for a long time and was seen in tragic form on Jan 6 at the Capital. Braver Angels is an organization with thousands of hours behind it in weaving the fabric through workshops and one on one conversations. Learn a bit about what they do and what you might do better as a citizen.

 One outcome at Braver Angels is this: Participants rarely change their views of issues, but they do consistently change their views of each other, and many find the experience so hopeful and reassuring that they want to continue to meet and work together in the future.
