The purpose of this training is to help participants develop skills facilitating difficult social justice conversations. The program will feature an introduction to active listening in conversations about social justice issues on which people have strongly held beliefs. After that, we will break into small groups and work through a variety of difficult conversation scenarios in which participants might find themselves. The goal of this workshop is not to teach debate or explore the content of specific issues. Instead, we seek to develop skills that will help participants engage in difficult conversations (when they feel safe doing so) in constructive ways, while staying true to their social justice principles.

We hope to have participants from a variety of identities, student groups, academic disciplines, and activist communities represented. Some basic knowledge of social justice theories and community involvement is preferred.
