April 22, 2017 (EARTH DAY)
11:00 AM – 2:00 PM
“The March for Science demonstrates our passion for science and sounds a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists. The incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by the support of hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
The mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.”

In the wake of this year’s Presidential election, courage is needed to address and reduce conflict and hostility. How do we create compassion when tensions have so divided people in the public square?
This workshop, facilitated by DI Executive Director Rebecca Mays, will help address that question, inviting you to develop your own dialogue skills and capacity for compassion in engaging others across deep difference. We will explore basic principles and techniques of dialogue and nonviolent communication, and practice tools for dealing with polarization and prejudice in our own unique contexts.
Space is limited so be sure to reserve your spot early! REGISTER HERE
