Free Online Discussion -- Political Stereotypes: Are you more than your party label?

Saturday, May 11, 10:00-11:30 AM PDT

Presented online by the Silicon Valley Braver Angels Alliance

Free Online Event!

Especially in a presidential election year, Americans are defined by political labels: Democrat or Republican, liberal or conservative, progressive or MAGA, red or blue. And while individuals’ values and policy choices are nuanced and formed by widely varying life experiences, that doesn’t keep us from stereotyping the political beliefs of others into these simple labels..

How do we move past these political stereotypes, and learn to have a greater appreciation for the diversity of views that exist across the political spectrum?

To get insight into this question and discuss constructive ways we can break down these labels, please join the Silicon Valley Braver Angels Alliance for an informal 90-minute conversation on political stereotypes.
