January 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PST

2020 Election – Concerns and Aspirations: 90 Min. Conversation w/ Optional 30 Min. Q&A with Hosts!

7:00 PM EASTERN / 4:00 PM PACIFIC (adjust for your time zone)

As the 2020 election approaches our national anxiety is ramping up. Countless voices clamor for our attention—our donations—our time—our votes. Headlines and news broadcasts may present conflicting reports on issues to bolster specific views. Shrill ads play to our fears and overwhelm our senses. As we prepare to cast our ballots amidst all this noise, it can be difficult to connect our votes with our values. This conversation is an opportunity to share and reflect on our perspectives with others. It may be helpful in cutting through the clutter to best match our votes to our personal values and hopes for the future.

HERE is the conversation guide. The questions explored include: 

  • What is motivating you to pay attention to or look away from certain political voices? 
  • What values are you hoping to promote? To protect? 
  • Where do you find news that you trust? Whose thoughts and opinions do you respect?
  • How have you made your voting decisions in the past? What will determine how you cast your  ballots in the future? 
  • What do you fear about the upcoming election?
  • What do you hope for from the upcoming election?

How long do I have to register?

How can I invite others to participate? 
At the bottom of your Confirmation email which you will receive right after you register, there are some resources you can use to invite others. In a nutshell, we suggest reaching out 1:1 to those who think differently from you and telling them why you think they would like this conversation and why you are registered. 

What do I need to participate? 

You will need a device with a webcam  (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone) to participate and be seen by other participants.  A Zoom link to join the conversation and a link to the conversation guide will be sent to you the day before and again one hour before the conversation.  

For the conversation, bring the Conversation Guide along with an attitude of respect and curiosity!
