Depolarizing Within Workshop for NC Campus Compact – Students

October 9 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Much of today’s polarization is driven by how we talk with like-minded people about those on the other side. Too often, we stereotype, dismiss, or ridicule our fellow citizens who support the other political party, its leaders, and its policies.

This free, two-hour workshop helps participants become more aware of their own “inner polarizer.” It teaches how to be critical without demonizing, dismissing, or stereotyping large swaths of the population. And it offers 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 is a two-part workshop.

Part one consists of a 40 minute, interactive online course on the Braver Angels website.

Part two is practicing what you’ve learned in our two-hour, online workshop.

Who can come? Anyone interested in examining their own inner polarization.
