Political discussion can be quite polarizing .
According to the Better Angels, political polarization did not start with the 2016 election – it’s been gaining momentum for over 20 years.

We try to understand the other side’s point of view, even if we don’t agree with it
We engage those we disagree with, looking for common ground and ways to work together
We support principles that bring us together rather than divide us
The skills needed to calm the war of words are taught through an up-coming workshop open to all willing to become better communicators. The next event will be held December 7th at Trinity United Methodist Church from 12:00pm to 3:00pm.
