Our democracy appears to be in trouble with many sides polarized and each side vilifying each other. So what can one do to make a positive change? Rather than attacking the opposition, understanding their intensity and fears as well as understanding our own enables more effective democratic responses.
Join us in a Community Conversation as Sally Purath, longtime Poudre School District high school educator, leads a discussion on this important topic. Our discussion will begin with information from Jonathan Haidt’s book The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion*. His book discusses research on moral psychology and suggests ways to move forward on a personal level. We will then explore ways all of us can implement these ideas in our own communities.
Monday, May 21 12:00 – 1:30 pm
Harmony Library Community Room 4616 S Shields Fort Collins
