The Morals We Live By


Location: Online

Many of us approach politics with a keen sense for what is right and wrong.

But what is right? What is wrong? How do we know the difference? If we disagree with others who hold different views, is there a way we can still work together to solve public problems?

Join us on June 9 to explore these questions through our webinar: The Morals We Live By. This webinar will be led by Lisa Swallow, Co-founder and Executive Director of SAGE’s partner organization, Crossing Party Lines.

Drawing on the work of Jonathan Haidt and his book, The Righteous Mind, Lisa will spotlight six moral foundations that are held across cultures and how they manifest in different people at different times. We’ll explore the tensions within our morals, so we can better understand ourselves and our views, and relate to people who may hold different views.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn to recognize the moral underpinnings of your own views;
  • Listen for indications that one or more of the six moral foundations is at play in an any political discussion; and
  • Bring morality into your political discussions in a non-confrontational way.

Join us on June 9 and bring your morals to the conversation.
