Civility Week: Living Room Conversations #1

October 5 @ 11:45 am - 1:15 pm

Living Room Conversations are a simple way to connect across divides – politics, age, gender, race, nationality, and more. Getting at the heart of what we share in common with one another, these conversations have powerful, positive impacts across society – including a sense of respect, understanding, and even friendship in unexpected places! The backbone of a Living Room Conversation is a conversational model developed by dialogue experts in order to facilitate connection between people despite their differences, and even identify areas of common ground and shared understanding. Within this model, we have developed over 100 conversation guides on all sorts of topics that can otherwise be tense to talk about with friends, strangers, and even loved ones of differing backgrounds and political persuasions. We hope this will become a monthly event. https://livingroomconversations.org

* The Civility Week Student Activity Card enables students to earn raffle tickets for event attendance. Cards are available for pick-up in SLC-105, stamped at in-person events, and an honor system is used to self-stamp at remote live events. Cards should be returned to SLC-105 at the end of Civility Week. Raffle winners will be contacted via email to collect gift certificates and Brookdale gear!
