This day-long training with Essential Partners* is for anyone who is concerned about the level of polarization in this country, and who wants to become better able to dialogue with people who hold different views. The goal is not persuasion, but building trust, understanding, and respect for differences.Learn skills to speak about what is important to you in ways that can be heard, and hear others’ concerns with understanding - even if you disagree. Connecting across differences is possible - and crucial - to moving forward in our relationships, families, communities, and our nation as a whole.

Cost: $100-$125. Scholarships may be available, depending on enrollment.
