Healing the Divide — Sunday, August 2, 1:00 on Zoom

Presenter: Michael Abramson

Healing the Divide is a UUCPA group that formed after the 2016 election to ask: 1) what do we not understand about others with more conservative viewpoints, and 2) what can we learn that will help us communicate even across wide differences in belief.

Our country has problems, actually, many stubborn problems that have persisted through several democratic and republican administrations.  Why can’t we make progress in solving them? 

One important reason: our increasing political polarization.  This is the biggest problem in America .  Before we can begin solving all other problems, we have to solve this problem first.  Many Americans agree that the political divide is a big problem. 

Michael Abramson will present many slides discussing these issues:


  • How are we polarized? 
  • What are the dividing lines?
  • Why are we polarized?
  • Why is our polarization getting worse?
  • And most importantly, what can we do about this divide?


Let’s find answers together.  Our own country requires our help. 

The meeting ID is 856 2487 9820.  The password and a clickable link will be sent to the Announce and CYREparents email lists the day before the meeting.

Hope to see you there!
