Depolarization Training Workshop

October 16, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

 Invitation to the public to attend a virtual workshop called “Depolarization” on Monday, October 16th at five PM.   We are all well aware of the ugly divisiveness that exists in our society.  People refuse to talk to anyone who does not share their views.  They are considered enemies.

 As a result of this tribalism in politics nothing is getting done.  This is where depolarization can help. Opposing sides are brought together.  They are encouraged to leave their biases, prejudices and prejudgments at the door and listen to each other.  There is no political agenda at this point.  As time goes on in a less challenging, non threatening  environment, people get to know each other and talk about things that we all struggle with as humans.  Trust begins to form and slowly issues are discussed.

Moderators, Jeanie Yaroch and Tim Mahoney, both of Sandwich, will teach this workshop. The Barnstable County Human Rights Advisory Commission is sponsoring this workshop. Pre-register for this workshop at: https://barnstablecounty.formstack.com/forms/de_polarization_registration_1
