Join us for an exploration of skills, tactics, and strategies that will enable you to better engage in challenging conversations and address polarizing beliefs in your personal relationships over Thanksgiving break and beyond.

We all have access to the people that we love—family and friends—in ways that others do not.  Instead of unfriending that racist uncle on Facebook or avoiding contentious discussion at the dinner table, how can we get these conversations started in such a way that encourages meaningful results?

This workshop is rooted in recognizing the importance of personal access when seeking to combat discriminatory beliefs and harmful actions.  A non-pizza dinner will be served.

Sponsored and led by members of the CLS Mediation Clinic.
