Workshop Description

During this workshop we’ll discuss the reality that diversity in people and their beliefs are not a one-party issue. We’ll cover social issues, like LGBTQ rights, gun reform and immigration in today’s politics that cross political boundaries and intersect. We’ll highlight legislators on the Western Slope who sometimes vote against their party because their beliefs cross political divides. And after touching briefly on the power of stories to help us seek common ground, we’ll conduct an interactive workshop on intersectionality to help each of us gain a deeper understanding about why people who may seem so alike, can believe and act so vastly differently.
