Skills for Bridging the Divide

A special invitation for our neighbors in Pittsburgh and SWPA

Monday, April 19, 2021, 7- 9 pm

Via Zoom – Register HERE

Our country has become increasingly polarized over political issues recently. This FREE workshop will teach you strategies for both listening and speaking with people who have differing political opinions – but not to try to change anyone’s mind. You will learn and practice skills for having respectful conversations that clarify differences, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of meaningful dialogue. Come to learn new skills (or reinforce existing skills) and practice in a comfortable, low-stakes environment.

This workshop is being facilitated by the national organization, Braver Angels, https://braverangels.org/

It is open to anyone interested in having better conversations with people on the other side (or the same side!) of the political aisle.
