Tribalism 101: 90-Minute Conversation w/ Optional 30-Minute Q & A with Hosts!

Free


June 27, 2019 @ 7:00 – 9:00 pm ET / 4:00 – 6:00 pm PT (adjust for your time zone)








Inspired by the podcast Next Door Strangers, this Living Room Conversation begins with a 15-minute podcast: http://www.kuer.org/post/1-tribalism-101-pick-side. We invite you to listen and then begin your Living Room Conversation.


Tribalism: the behavior and attitudes that stem from strong loyalty to one’s own tribe or social group. People on the left and right may disagree on many things, but they generally agree that “tribalism” is bad for our politics and our country. Although most people want communities where all people have dignity and respect, respectful interactions are often not what we see modeled in the media and in politics. How do we build strong and unified communities in a divisive time?


Here is the conversation guide. Some of the questions explored include:



  • Name one or more groups you feel at home or strongly identify with (where you find a sense of belonging and/or feel stronger together).


  • What generalizations do you think people make about your group? Which are accurate? Which are inaccurate? Which are most painful?








You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).


Please only sign up for a place in this conversation if you are 100% certain that you can join – and thank you – we have many folks waiting to have Living Room Conversations and hope to have 100% attendance. If you need to cancel please return to Eventbrite to cancel your ticket.


A link to join the conversation and additional details will be sent to you by no later than the day before the conversation.
