The League of Women Voters Snohomish County is sponsoring a “Depolarizing Within” workshop Sunday, May 2, from 1-4 p.m. via Zoom.
Much of today’s polarization is driven by how we talk with like-minded people about those on the other side, the league announcement notes. Too often, we stereotype, dismiss, or ridicule our fellow citizens who support the other political party, its leaders, and its policies.
What you will learn:
– How to be more aware of your own “inner polarizer.”
– How to be critical without demonizing, dismissing or stereotyping large swaths of the population.
– 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.
This free 2.5 – 3 hour workshop is offered online over Zoom and is open to anyone interested in examining their own inner polarization and learning strategies to disagree without condemning or ridiculing others.
This event is a partnership between the League of Women Voters of Snohomish County and Braver Angels Washington.
