Shoulders Down

Conversations Beyond Our Bubble

"We want to change the nature of oppositional discourse today. As friends and neighbors draw into separate ideological bubbles, relationships and diversity suffer. Shoulders Down provides a structured framework for conversations to ensure respect - no persuasion, no attacks, no judgement.

We discuss one topic in each conversation, listen to understand, and share our stories, with a facilitator to help us hold to our guidelines and time. In Shoulders Down Conversations, we hope to weave our fractured communities back together, one conversation at a time."

Upcoming conversation: What Does Healthy News and Media Look Like?

December 5 • 6:30 pm • All Saint's Episcopal Church & Day School; 6300 N. Central Avenue, Phoenix


May all beings be safe and protected...
