Meg Heubeck, Director of Educational Outreach at the UVA Center for Politics will present a workshop on:

Political Civility:

Talking to People Who Disagree With You

Tuesday, 23 April, 2019, from 7 to 9 PM

Rappahannock County Library, 4 Library Rd, Washington VA 22747

In this age of polarization, it is important to be able to talk with spouses, neighbors, and acquaintances about issues where you may not agree. This workshop will provide the tools to have those discussions. These skills are often not intuitive, but they can be learned. The result will be more civil discussions of issues important to us all and more informed decisions. Note: this workshop is not about issues. It is about acquiring the tools to discuss those issues.

The workshop is free, non-political and open to everyone. Send me an email to say you’re coming, so I know how many cookies to make.
