Our first workshop, held on October 1, 2022 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Sonora CA.
Can we solve problems by working together?
It’s no secret that our country is being torn apart by polarization – political ideologies that demonize the other side and dehumanize our fellow Americans. Too many of us no longer see our political opponents as simply wrong or misguided. They are seen as enemies who must be defeated at all costs.
Practical solutions for Tuolumne County
There are steps we can take to reduce the effects of polarization on our community, so that we can work together to get things done! Braver Angels, a national, non partisan, non profit organization is bringing its free Depolarizing Within Workshop to Sonora on October 1, 2022.
Who is this for?
Anyone interested in examining their own inner polarization and learning strategies to disagree without condemning or ridiculing others. This workshop is designed to foster skills to help you lessen the effects of polarization when you encounter them in your conversations. It is ideal for members of communities of worship, social clubs, educational institutions and governmental bodies.
In this 3 hour workshop, you will learn:
- How to be more aware of your own “inner polarizer”.
- How to be critical without demonizing, dismissing or stereotyping large swaths of the population.
- How to constructively intervene in polarizing social conversations with like-minded people.
