Program Description

Event Details

In our current political environment, many people in Anne Arundel County avoid political conversations with friends, neighbors, or co-workers whose politics differ from their own.

Braver Angels is a nation-wide organization formed to unite red and blue Americans to depolarize our society. This free workshop will teach participants skills for having respectful conversations that clarify differences, search for common ground, and affirm their common humanity and wanting the best for our country. Participants will have an opportunity to practice those skills with each other.

This program will be hosted on the library's Zoom platform. After registration, you will be sent an email with instructions to join the Zoom meeting. You can access the program using a smartphone, tablet, or computer. 

The required online training in preparation for this workshop is available at https://braverangels.org/online/online-skills-training/

Only registrants who have completed the preparation course will be able to participate in the workshop activities. Otherwise you may attend and observe.
