Civil Discourse Café: Complicated Conversations
Can we talk? Practice what is possible.
These days it is likely you have had a discussion that has turned intense and have found yourself wondering, “How could someone think that?”
Many conversations today are becoming increasingly polarized. However, our society cannot function well if we refuse to engage with people who have different views. Democracy depends on respectful disagreement — even when it’s fundamental and intense disagreement. Are we only hearing from and talking to people who already agree with us?
This interactive event will focus on practicing civil discourse with one another as we share a variety of perspectives around issues of water and equity in our local and global communities.
