How do we decide what we most value that bestows this status? While our country seems to favor wealth\, there are other forms of status and privilege. What privilege do each of us enjoy? And how does that correspond with our status? This conversation examines our own status and how we use our status in everyday life. From education to wealth to gender to race\, let’s talk about what we have…and what we desire.\n\n\n\nPlease see the conversation guide for this topic. Some of the questions explored include:\n\n\n\nWhat status do you enjoy? Education\, wealth\, gender\, race\, etc?\nWhat are the privileges of your status?\nWhat do you value and how is that connected to your status or privilege?\n\nYou will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone). \nPlease 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. If you need to cancel please return to Eventbrite to cancel your ticket.\nA link to join the conversation and additional details will be sent to you by no later than the day before the conversation. \n\n\n\n\n \n URL:https://www.livingroomconversations.org/event/online-living-room-conversation-status-and-privilege-2/ ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.livingroomconversations.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/f5d4faa5de6372c8e969fcd4d7608353.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Los_Angeles:20190428T130000 DTEND;TZID=America/Los_Angeles:20190428T143000 DTSTAMP:20190421T011959 CREATED:20190325T192049Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190420T180830Z UID:7428-1556456400-1556461800@www.livingroomconversations.org SUMMARY:Online Living Room Conversation: Tribalism 101: Next Door Strangers DESCRIPTION:\nApril 28\, 2019 @ 4:00 – 5:30 pm ET/ 1:00 – 2:30 pm PT (adjust for your time zone)\n\n\n\nTribalism: the behavior and attitudes that stem from strong loyalty to one’s own tribe or social group. People on the left and right may disagree on many things\, but they generally agree that “tribalism” is bad for our politics and our country. Although most people want communities where all people have dignity and respect\, respectful interactions are often not what we see modeled in the media and in politics. How do we build strong and unified communities in a divisive time?\nInspired by the podcast Next Door Strangers\, this Living Room Conversation begins with a  15-minute podcast: http://www.kuer.org/post/1-tribalism-101-pick-side\nPlease see the conversation guide for this topic. Some of the questions explored include:\n\n\n\nName one or more groups you feel at home or strongly identify with (where you find a sense of belonging and/or feel stronger together)\nWhat generalizations do you make about other groups? How do you evaluate or check the validity of your generalizations\, if at all? How important is it to you that your generalizations are accurate?\nSome groups come together based on sharing a common culture\, vision\, or enemy. What is the\ncommonality for your group? What need does your group fulfill in your life?\n\nYou will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone). \nPlease 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. If you need to cancel please return to Eventbrite to cancel your ticket.\nA link to join the conversation and additional details will be sent to you by no later than the day before the conversation. \n\n\n\n\n \n URL:https://www.livingroomconversations.org/event/online-living-room-conversation-tribalism-101-next-door-strangers-6/ ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.livingroomconversations.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/74087cb5dbe8973076cfe51bbdb4a2a0.jpg END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
