2020 Election – Concerns and Aspirations
November 7, 2019 @ 7:00 PM EASTERN / 4:00 PM PACIFIC (adjust for your time zone)
As the midterm elections approach, our national anxiety is ramping up. Countless voices clamor for our attention—our donations—our time—our votes. Headlines and news broadcasts present conflicting reports on issues, using their own facts 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. Some of 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?
Registration will close 4 hours before the conversation begins.
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
Please only sign up for a place in this conversation if you are 100% certain that you can join – and thank you – we have many folks waiting to have Living Room Conversations and hope to have 100% attendance.
A link to join the conversation and additional details will be sent to you the day before the conversation, and again one hour before the conversation.
