Workshop focus on civil discourse, resilience

Early voting is underway, continuing through Friday, Oct. 30, but discussions of political issues will be ongoing. A new workshop provides information on how to keep those conversations civil and find connections between people — especially between the two polarized political sides.

The Civil Discourse & Resilience Workshop, scheduled 2-4:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 24, is a free, two-part event aimed at developing skills to help bridge political divides and work together to find solutions to problems. The workshop was organized with the TWU Community in mind and is limited to 80 participants.

The civil discourse portion teaches how to find common ground and work together toward solutions to policy issues. The resilience portion will focus on dealing with setbacks and how to take actions to productively move forward.

The Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy, Student Life and the TWU Health and Wellbeing Initiative are partnering with Braver Angels, a citizens’ organization whose mission is to unite Americans on both sides of the political aisle, to present the workshop. Register for the online event.
