Better Angels Depolarizing Workshop Is Set For July 14

Saturday, July 6, 2019

Better Angels, a national volunteer organization focused on depolarizing the political divide between families, co workers and neighbors, will host a free, three hour listening and speaking skills workshop for Chattanooga area residents. 

It will be held Sunday, July 14, from 2-5 p.m. in the North Chattanooga area. 

Guests are invited to come early or stay later for potluck and conversation.

The workshop is designed to provide skills to promote civility, respect and acceptance of people with political views different than our own. 

This workshop is about listening and learning, not debating or convincing.

For more information contact Jon Wolfe, (615) 578-2196, visiting Nashville Better Angels moderator, or Tom Banks, (252) 902-4058, Chattanooga Better Angels organizer.
