Class Description

Many have raised the concern that internal disagreements weaken the power of our collective voice to effectuate change. In this class we will use a dialogue format to clarify differences within a broad coalition of Democratic voters. We will promote understanding of our valued perspectives by exploring the values and experiences that have influenced us. Based on this understanding, we will consider ways to go forward individually and collectively

Donations are always welcome and appreciated!
