Making Democracy Work…Better

Join us for a community conversation on Monday, May 21 from 12-1:30 at the Harmony Library.  We invite you to discuss, “How Can We Help Make Democracy Work Better?”

Our democracy appears to be in trouble with many sides polarized and vilifying each other, so what can one do to make a positive change?  Rather than attacking the opposition, understanding their intensity and fears as well as understanding our own enables more effective democratic responses.   book-cover

Join us in a Community Conversation as Sally Purath, longtime Poudre School District high school educator, leads a discussion on this important topic.  Our discussion will begin with information from Jonathan Haidt’s book The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion.  His book discusses research on moral psychology and suggests ways to move forward on a personal level.  We will then explore ways all of us can implement these ideas in our own communities.
