    Better Angels is a non-partisan, national citizens’ movement to reduce political polarization in the United States by bringing liberals and conservatives together to understand each other beyond stereotypes.

    Please join us for the Better Angels Skills Workshop to:
    • Learn skills to have respectful conversations with people who disagree with you.
    • Clarify differences
    • Search for common ground
    • Deal with the stress among family members and friends whose views differ from yours


    The Better Angels Skills Workshop will help you learn how to disagree without being disagreeable.  During the workshop, you will have  opportunities to practice conversation skills. You will practice in a pair with someone with a similar viewpoint.

    While there is no cost for the workshop, donations to the Bellingham Shambhala Center are appreciated. 

    When you register, please note in the "Comment" box whether you identify politically as: Conservative, Liberal, or Other.

    Doors open at 8:30 for coffee, tea and snacks
