Better Angels Skills Workshop:
How to Talk Across Our Differences
 
Please join us for the Better Angels Skills Workshop to:
    • Learn skills to have respectful conversations with people who disagree with you.
    • Clarify differences
    • Search for common ground
    • Deal with the stress among family members and friends whose view differ from yours

 The Better Angels Skills Workshop will help you learn how to disagree without being disagreeable.  After a presentation, you will have an opportunity to practice conversation skills. You will practice in a pair with someone with a similar viewpoint. 

 As you know, Rotary is a neutral, non-political organization and does not endorse parties or candidates. We believe life – and our clubs- are richer with diversity of thought, culture, and yes… political leanings. 

 We respect the goals of Better Angels as an agent to help citizens practice listening, empathy, and appreciation for those who we disagree with.

 Hope to see you on October 18th!

 About Better Angels:  Launched in 2016, Better Angels is a bipartisan citizen’s movement to unify our divided nation. By bringing red and blue Americans together into a working alliance, we’re building new ways to talk to one another, participate together in public life, and influence the direction of the nation.

 We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory…will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature. – Abraham Lincoln, 1861
