Much of today’s polarization is driven by how we talk with like-minded people about those on the other side. Too often, we stereotype, dismiss, or ridicule our fellow citizens who support the other political party, its leaders, and its policies. This workshop teaches participants:
1: How to be more aware of their own “inner polarizer”
2: How to be critical without demonizing, dismissing, or stereotyping large swaths of the population
3: Strategies for intervening constructively in social conversations with like-minded peers when these conversations veer into contempt and ridicule for people who hold other political views
