SGA Speaker Series: Can’t We All Just Get Along? with Dr. Stacey Pearson-Wharton
Over the last few years, the art of debate has become pure vitriol in our country. From the national political stage down to discussion in the hallways of college campuses, we are struggling with how to disagree with civility.
When people engaging in a disagreement, they often fail to listen and are unwilling to respect different opinions. Moreover, people are turning to social media as the vehicle to debate not having face-to-face conversations.
In this presentation, Stacey gives participants the tools they need to have can have authentic, healthy conversations about the “the scary stuff” like racism, homophobia, sexism, etc. Because in life it is okay to disagree, but we need to approach those disagreements with civil discourse so that “we can all just get along”.
