Polarizing Perspectives

THIS COMMUNITY-BUILDING EVENT IS INSPIRED BY THE ‘WORKING ACROSS DIFFERENCES’ COURSE IN THE RED RIVER PROGRAM I GRADUATED FROM. OUR COURSEBOOK WAS ‘BECOMING AN ALLY’ BY ANNE BISHOP WHICH I HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR DEVELOPING A HEALED AND COOPERATIVE MINDSET. MUCH NEEDED IN THIS INCREASINGLY DIVIDED WORLD.

WE DEAL WITH MANY POLARIZING PERSPECTIVES ON VARIOUS CURRENT AFFAIRS LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY. NO ONE CAN HAVE THE EXACT SAME OPINION, NOR CAN WE HAVE ANY SUCCESS IF WE ARE UNWILLING TO BEING OPEN TO UNDERSTANDING ANOTHER’S POINT OF VIEW. THIS ACTIVITY WILL CYCLE THROUGH CURRENT TOPICS WHICH WILL BE DETAILED ON THE CALENDAR OF EVENTS. THE OVERALL GOAL IS TO BEGIN TO NEUTRALIZE OUR RIGID AND CONFLICTING PATTERNS WHICH FOSTER SEPARATION AND CAN LEAD TO SERIOUS CHALLENGES AND EVEN VIOLENCE. By donation*
