An Evening with Living Room Conversations
Tuesday, November 14, 7:30 PM
Today more than ever, political divisions are straining cherished relationships between family and friends. As you prepare to gather with family and friends in November and December, there is no better time to learn how to navigate challenging conversations with respect and curiosity.
Join the JCC East Bay and Joan Blades, founder of Living Room Conversations, for an introduction on how to create dialogue across difference. Through thoughtful conversation and the power of listening, we can begin to mend fractured relationships we have with our friends, family, neighbors, and community. These relationships across difference are key to the health and prosperity of a society that believes in respect and equality for all. Is there a way for us to tap into the kindness and goodwill that we’ve seen in our friends across the political spectrum?
Founded in 2010, Living Room Conversations strives to cultivate respectful engagement among people who may hold profoundly different points of view, and works to build relationships that generate understanding and enable collaborative problem-solving.
