Talking Politics on (and off) Social Media: What needs to change?

Friday, February 8, 2019 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

This hands-on workshop is for anyone who wishes conversations and interactions between people who disagree politically could be more constructive, especially on social media. It is also for anyone who wonders if that is even possible, or those who question if it is worth it. Both research and personal experience show that polarization is increasing in the United States.

The workshop is being done in conjunction with a new online project called The Commons
