Braver Angels Workshop: Depolarizing Within

Braver Angels Workshop: Depolarizing Within Online

Braver Angels brings together Red and Blue Americans in a working alliance to depolarize America. Join this workshop to foster skills to help you lessen the effects of polarization when you encounter them in your political conversations. Note that by “polarization,” we are not referring to healthy disagreements over issues or philosophy. We are talking about how we regard and talk about large groups of ordinary people on the other side of the political aisle.

Take this workshop if you are interested in: 1. Becoming more aware of your own inner polarizer and finding ways to counteract that impulse. 2. Learning how to be critical without stereotyping, dismissing, ridiculing, or showing contempt. 3. Building skills for intervening in a constructive way in social conversations that veer into contempt and ridicule for people who hold other political views.

This program is put on as part of Florida Humanities’ Museum on Main Street program. The “Voices & Votes: Democracy in America” exhibit and related programming are brought to you by Florida Humanities and the Smithsonian Institution. We would also like to thank the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership. Local Sarasota support has been provided by Gulf Coast Community Foundation.

This event is not hosted by the SJR State Library. We are sharing news of this free event because it is related to the curriculum offered at the College and, therefore, may be of interest to our students, faculty, and staff.
