Red/Blue Workshop

Joe and Julie Mandarino, experienced Better Angels moderators, will conduct this half-day Red/Blue Workshop. Red/Blue Workshops bring together 5-7 right-leaning voters and 5-7 left-leaning voters for structured conversations. Participants can expect to better understand the experiences and beliefs of those on the other side of the political divide, to find areas of commonality in addition to differences, and to learn something that might be helpful to you and to others in your community and the nation.
