Living Room Conversations webinar (2 sessions!) – Tribalism 101

Tuesday, February 26th
11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern and again at 5pm Pacific, 8pm Eastern

Inspired by the podcast Next Door Strangers (KUER, Utah) this Living Room Conversation begins with a 15-minute podcast: http://www.kuer.org/post/1-tribalism-101-pick-sidePlease listen to this podcast prior to your conversation.

Tribalism: the behavior and attitudes that stem from strong loyalty to one’s own tribe or social group. People on the left and right may disagree on many things, but they generally agree that “tribalism” is bad for our politics and our country. Although most people want communities where all people have dignity and respect, respectful interactions are often not what we see modeled in the media and in politics. How do we build strong and unified communities in a divisive time?

Join us for a free online (using Zoom) Living Room Conversation on the topic of Tribalism. Please see the conversation guide for this topic.
