Will Progressives’ Infighting Impede Our Progress? A Dialogue
April 27 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Many observers have raised the problem that progressives’ internal disagreements weaken the power of our collective voice to effectuate change. In this class we will seek to identify the differences within this broad coalition and the recurrent tensions that can threaten our momentum as we advance toward the 2020 election. We will use a dialogue format to explore the values underlying differing positions and approaches. We will seek a nuanced understanding of the best uses of each approach and explore the extent to which a respectful shared platform is a viable and useful possibility.
Trainers: Norma Akamatsu, Clinical Social Worker focused on reconciliation in families and communities and Gail Perlman, retired mediator and conflict resolution facilitator.
