Helping Loved Ones Divided By Politics:  A Braver Angels Organization Event
This event can help you prepare for any potentially challenging conversations you may have with your family and friends during the holiday season.  Are you foreseeing a possible politically charged political discussion at the Thanksgiving Day table?  If so, this event can help you prepare!

For this Non-Book Club Event, view this recent
Braver Angels video ahead of time, in which co-founder, Bill Doherty, Ph.D., uses the concepts taught during Braver Angels workshops to help those with differing political views learn new tools for connecting and communicating. Braver Angels is an organization uniting Red (Conservative) and Blue (Liberal) Americans in a working alliance to depolarize America. We encourage you to go onto the Braver Angels website to find out more about the organization.

In this video, two cousins, Kathy and Matt, are coached by Bill to help them find better ways to manage their political differences for the sake of their relationship.  The goal is to help Kathy and Matt, and the audience, learn better ways to manage their political differences for the sake of their relationships. We hope it helps our country as well!

Our discussion will be on your thoughts regarding the concepts being conveyed to Kathy and Matt to help them have a more agreeable, informative, and friendly conversation; while still sharing their differing viewpoints with each other.

You must register to participate in this event. We ask that you view the Helping Loved Ones Divided By Politics - Kathy & Matt video prior to attending this event (see below for link).  Registered participants will receive a Zoom link by email prior to the event.
