Braver Angels Fall Series Civility & Peace During the Election Season

September 29 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 6:30 pm on day 29 of the month, repeating indefinitely

We all know how divided our society (and – even more tragically – our Church) has become. We’ve become so entrenched in our political identities that we’ve lost sight of who we are, especially who we are as sisters and brothers in Christ. In an attempt to heal ourselves and our community from these dehumanizing and demonizing behaviors, the Respect Life and Catholic Social Action offices are partnering with Braver Angels to offer a series of three on-line workshops during the election season.

On Thursday Sept. 29, we’ll offer ‘Depolarizing Within’, a workshop that teaches participants to look within and develop strategies for engaging politics without demonizing, and how to constructively intervene in social conversations with like-minded peers.

On Thursday October 20, we’ll over Skills for Bridging the Divide’, a workshop to help you through difficult political conversations with people in your life, considering how to talk across the divide in a constructive, empathetic way.

And finally, on Thursday Nov. 10 (two days after Election Day and just two weeks before Thanksgiving), we’ll offer ‘Families and Politics’, a workshop that shows how we can talk about politics with our loved ones in a way that brings us closer together – not pulls us farther apart.

You can register at the links listed above, and you can attend one, two, or all three of the sessions. All workshops will start at 6:30pm, are offered free of charge, and will be offered virtually.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Andrew Musgrave. We look forward to meeting, praying, and working with you for a more compassionate world.
