Bridging the Red /Blue Chasm: Step One is Learning How Other People See the World

You’re invited to participate in Bridging the Red /Blue Chasm: Step One is Learning How Other People See the World.

In an effort to encourage dialogue in divisive times, Dakota County Library is partnering with University of Minnesota professor Bill Doherty for a facilitated workshop that brings together people who differ politically. The focus will be on listening and learning rather than on arguing and persuading.

Workshop participants will identify with either the “Red” side of the political spectrum (more conservative), or “Blue” side (more liberal). Observers may be present at the event.

DATE: Monday, June 19, 6:00-8:30 p.m.
LOCATION: Wescott Library, 1340 Wescott Road, Eagan

MAIN FACILITATOR: Bill Doherty, a University of Minnesota professor of family social science and director of the Citizen Professional Center. Through his work with an organization called Better Angels, Bill has led Red/Blue workshops in Minnesota and other parts of the country.

RSVP by Monday, June 12 to Heather at heather.stephenson@co.dakota.mn.us or 651-450-2965. In your RSVP, please indicate whether you identify as red or blue. Information will only be shared with program organizers, in order to create a balanced group.
