Red/Blue Bilingual Workshop w/ Better Angels Central Texas
Engage in respectful BILINGUAL dialogue across the political spectrum to gain a deeper understanding of the views and values of others.
What is a Red/Blue Workshop? A workshop bringing together about 5-7 REDS - conservative (Republican-leaning) citizens and 5-7 BLUES - liberal (Democratic-leaning) citizens -- for an afternoon of structured conversations. Many participants are not purely one color or the other. Just pick the color you ‘lean’ and tend to vote. The design of the workshops balance interactions between the colors in a respectful and impactful way. There is also space for observers who wish to interact during the breaks but not participate in the actual workshop.
What happens in the workshop: You participate in a series of structured experiences, designed by an expert in Family Therapy, to breakthrough stereotypes and misperceptions of the ‘other’ side. You hear how each side believes their values and policies are good for the country. You ask and answer earnest questions about each other’s beliefs and values.
Meals: You may bring your own OR Breakfast Tacos & Sandwich Boxes for sale. Coffee & Water Provided.
