Thank you to everyone who attended Conversations in a Civil Society. Share your thoughts with us!
We would like to thank our moderator, CCHS Social Studies teacher Ethan Hoblitzelle, and our panelists Ona Ferguson from Consensus Building Institute, Robert Munro from Middlesex School, and Rose Pavlov from Ivy Child for a fantastic program.
We spent the evening discussing ways to navigate our differences – politics, religion, values, lifestyle, etc. Our panelists talked about how we learn to have conversations around issues that sometimes divide us, and how we learn to listen better, discuss, and even find ways to bridge some of the issues that separate us.
What is your reaction to what our panelists had to say? Do you feel you are better equipped with some strategies for approaching difficult conversations? What kinds of programming would you like to see as a follow up? Please post your reactions, comments, and questions.
Don’t forget to save the date for The Defamation Experience on Wednesday, November 7, 2018!
The Play, The Deliberation, The Discussion. THE DEFAMATION EXPERIENCE is a unique interactive diversity program composed of three parts; the play, which explores the highly charged issues of race, class, religion, gender; the law with a twist: you are the jury. Through deliberations and post show discussion, the audience participates in civil discourse that challenges preconceived notions.
