A discussion leader
11 a.m., October 25, 2020
At this Sunday’s Humanist Forum we will present and discuss two short TED videos on how to disagree with others in a civil way.
The first is a Leah Garces talk, “A Lesson in Turning Adversaries into Allies,” (see https://www.ted.com/talks/leah_garces_a_lesson_in_turning_adversaries_into_allies) in which she recounts three lessons she learned in hatching an ambitious plan to end chicken factory farming with the last person she expected: a chicken farmer. This is a 13:26 minute talk.
The second is a talk by Julia Dhar, “How to Disagree Productively and Find Common Ground,” (see https://www.ted.com/talks/julia_dhar_how_to_disagree_productively_and_find_common_ground) in which she offers three techniques to reshape the way we talk to each other so we can start disagreeing productively and finding common ground — over family dinners, during work meetings and in our national conversations. This is a 14:48 minute talk.
Because of the coronavirus situation, this Forum will be held online.
