Adventurous Civility: Courage in a Time of Division

Location: Salon A-5 (Lower Level)

At a moment of deep polarization in public life, the On Being Civil Conversations Project (CCP) seeks to model “speaking together differently so that we might learn to live together differently.” Our local partners in Barrington, Illinois will offer their experience embarking upon “A Year of Courageous Conversations.” What does it look like to engage a community proud of its civic engagement and close relationships, but where the absence of diversity creates space where people can be polite, but not courageous.Using the CCP Grounding Virtues as our guide, how can we practice skills for courageous conversation in public life.
