      How to Talk Across the Political Divide: Better Angels Skills Workshop in Vancouver

      There's a lot of stress these days among family members and friends who are divided politically, and the current polarized public conversation doesn't help. Please join us for a Better Angels Skills Workshop to learn skills for having respectful conversations that clarify differences, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of the relationship. After a presentation, you will have an opportunity to practice listening and speaking skills. You will practice in a pair with someone of your same political persuasion—red or blue. “Reds” lean conservative and tend to vote Republican. “Blues” lean liberal and tend to vote Democratic. If you fall somewhere in the middle, you can choose a side for purposes of practicing the skills. Presenters: Cynthia O'Brien and Norman Wolfe, Better Angels Certified Moderators Who can come? Anyone interested in having better conversations with people on the other side of the political aisle. Questions? Contact Nancy Matela at nmatela@better-angels.org
