Intentional and Restorative Dialogue Group seeks participants

Thursday, June 8, 2017

We are a small group of Shoreline area residents who are interested in fostering open discussion among people of different political leanings (conservatives and progressives).

In this polarized political climate, there is a need to develop a greater understanding among ourselves and those who see things through another lens.

Recognizing that there is often a lack of dialogue across ideological lines, we are hoping to create opportunities for respectfully listening to and learning from one another.

To that end we are looking for a few people who would like to help develop this kind of exchange.

If this sounds interesting to you, please complete the attached questionnaire which will be used to ensure balanced representation of different points of view. Once a team of 4-6 people has been identified, this group will work on developing a format for open dialogue that would include community, regional and national issues, and could be used for larger group discussions.

If you are interested in being a part of this project, please answer the following questions.  Your responses will be kept confidential.

  1. Where would you place yourself on the political spectrum?
  2. What do you consider to be the most challenging issues we face today on a national level?
  3. What do you consider to be the most challenging local issues we face?
  4. How do you feel about our new administration and its policies?
  5. What would you hope to gain from participating in conversation across political ideologies?

Demographics: age, racial identity, gender identity
