How to Bridge Partisan Divides: A Demonstration!

Creating Common Ground

Location: Online

When was the last time you changed your mind in a debate about something you cared about?

Never, right?

Debates don’t solve problems. Particularly political problems.

Join me for a free, live, unrehearsed online demonstration of how to bridge divides on political issues. First, I’ll discuss how conflict resolution principles can create common ground with people on different sides of an issue.

Then, I’ll manage a political problem-solving conversation with two volunteers from the audience. The topic will be free speech versus hate speech. A general discussion will follow.

Wednesday, June 14th 6:00-7:30.
