Uncommon Conversations
Bridging the Political Divide: Civic Dialogue in a Time of Fracture

This fall, the Center for Ethical Leadership will offer a two-sessions dedicated to addressing and healing one of American society’s most disabling conditions, its fracture along political lines. “Bridging the Political Divide: Civic Dialogue in a Time of Fracture” will be the topic of these sessions. The program is part of CEL’s longtime, highly successful Uncommon Conversations series.

Informing the conversations will be the methods and principles of one of CEL’s fundamental concepts, Gracious Space. These conversation are intended to inspire dialogue of a sort that has grown increasingly rare: between people with seemingly opposed worldviews. Such conversation has never before been needed as badly as it is now. To remain highly effective, civic and organizational leaders need to cultivate dialogue of this sort.

  • The first session is on Saturday, October 28 from 1:00 pm–4:00 pm and is called, “Morality and Its Political Implications.” We welcome people with widely varying beliefs about prayer, religion, and spirituality and their relationship to government and politics.
  • The second session will be held on Wednesday, November 1, 6:30 pm–9:00 pm, and is called “Class, Freedom, and Equality.” Here we will gather individuals to discuss how politics and economic class affect our relationships with one another.
Sign up for one or both!

[European Dissent] Community Meeting
Dec 2 @ 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Hello European Dissent community!

Please join us for our (holiday-delayed) November Community meeting on Saturday December 2nd!  We will be screening and discussing the film Anne Braden: Southern Patriot.  This documentary explores the extraordinary life and legacy of the white American civil rights leader Anne Braden.  After she was charged with sedition for attempting to desegregate a Louisville, Kentucky neighborhood in 1954, Braden used the attacks to turn herself “inside out” and embrace a lifetime of racial justice organizing matched by few whites in American history.

Please join us for a screening and discussion from 3-5:30 pm on December 2nd, at Seattle First Baptist Church (1111 Harvard Ave).  We will also have a separate kid-focused activity available for those interested interested.

We hope to see you there!
