Finding Common Ground Across Communities
August 13, 2019 @ 11:00 pm - August 14, 2019 @ 1:00 am
How do we have discussions across social barriers? How do we find common ground with all our differences? How we do bring people together? How do we expand our circles & our reach to explain our concerns and unite within our community? Join us for the first in a series of roundtable, participatory discussions exploring these topics! We want your voice at the table – to highlight & involve as many different perspectives as we can bring together in order to more deeply inform the conversation. We can all learn from each other as we work to bridge across experiences.This event is free to attend.PWYC donations to support the cost of the space are greatly appreciated!This is a scent-free event. Please refrain from using scented colognes, perfumes, hair products or soaps.It’s fine if you bring in outside food and drink. We will have complimentary coffee, tea, and light snacks available.Sparkling water & sodas available by donation.ABOUT US:Marit Collective is a social organization that encourages a culture of depth and thoughtfulness through exploring personal insight and human connection. We create space for respectful discussion and consciousness-raising within our own groups and community, working at the personal level to foster more empathy and awareness of each other. We believe that individual shifts in understanding can lead to larger societal evolution in an increasingly polarized world.Our new home, the Causerie, is a place to listen, learn, and connect across perspectives. With this space, we are working to build a community centered around thoughtful discussion & deeper consideration of complex issues through sharing ideas and personal points-of-view.
