Join No Space for Hate for the next installment of Let’s Talk, community education workshops to address topics of discrimination. How do we have difficult conversations with people with whom we disagree on these issues? Together, we’ll explore civil discourse in uncivil times. Dr. Kevin Deegan-Krause, Associate Professor of Political Science at Wayne State University, and Sarah Eisenberg, LMSW and Women’s March Michigan Organizer, will lead a community discussion on how to communicate across political divides. Whether you want to engage with your community through activism or just with your friends and family for stronger connections, we’ll empower you with skills for identifying values, confronting your own bias, avoiding being defensive, listening to understand, and more. The program will begin promptly at 7 PM. Please arrive early to register and learn more about No Space for Hate and our collaborating groups.
