Depolarizing Workshops for College Students: Does it “Move the Needle”?

Braver Angels (BA) is a national non-profit organization focused on providing depolarization workshops to help us all positively engage with those with whom we disagree.

As an organizer and trained moderator for BA, I have adapted their materials to fit with the curricula of educational institutions. I recently provided two depolarization workshops to a group of students at Binghamton University. Their engagement and reaction to the program were extremely encouraging on the question that guidesme: how can we make a positive difference on the leaders of tomorrow and give them the tools to make ours a more harmonious society?

Their thoughtful responses to this very question are contained in this article.
