Where Do We Go From Here?
Please hold December 9, 2020 from 5:30 to 7:30pm for a lively and timely discussion about how we engage with each other in this moment. The presidential election brought into the relief the stark division that remains in the United States. Matt Martinez (XXV) and Jasmyn Jefferson (XXIV) will lightly moderate a discussion about how we move forward through dialogue and listening. What are the pitfalls and opportunities in engaging with one another?
Writer Baratunde Thurston is examining these issues on his podcast, "How To Citizen with Baratunde." To ground our conversation, please listen to this interview about the podcast, and at least one of his podcasts. We recommend "To Be Less Polarized, We Must Humanize," a conversation with relationship expert, Esther Perel. They discuss "how to repair relationships in this moment, and how choosing to listen and humanize each other is not only how to citizen, but enlightened self-interested."
