A free workshop (donations welcome) will help participants become more aware of their “inner polarizer” and learn methods for disagreeing without contempt and ridicule.
Braver Angels, a non-partisan group dedicated to civil discourse, will hold this workshop Saturday, September 9 1:30-4:30 pm at the Brownell Library in Essex Junction.
Much of today’s polarization is driven by how we talk with like-minded people about those on the other side, organizers say. Too often, people stereotype, dismiss, or ridicule fellow citizens who support the other political party, its leaders, and its policies. This workshop is for anyone interested in examining their own inner polarization and learning strategies to disagree without condemning or ridiculing others.
