The Eagan Alliance of Better Angels is working to depolarize American politics, as the group is part of Better Angels, a nationwide, volunteer, grassroots organization. More is at https://www.better-angels.org/minnesota.
The organization offers two types of workshops through the Dakota County Library System:
â€¢Â Red/Blue Workshops bring a balanced group of Republican-leaning and Democratic-leaning citizens together in a structured conversation that focuses on listening, learning and reflecting. The purpose is to listen for understanding to the experiences and beliefs of those on the other side of the political divide. Â
â€¢Â Skills Workshops provide participants the skills for having respectful conversations that clarify differences, reach for common ground and affirm the importance of maintaining relationships with those of the other side of the political divide. Participants practice conversation skills in pairs with someone of the same political persuasion.
