Join us for Center for Inquiry Northeast Ohio's March Cleveland chapter program, featuring a talk by CFINO's Akron/Canton chapter VP of Programming Monette Richards.
Do we - as secularists, humanists, atheists and skeptics - sometimes become too defensive? Are there times when we “double down” too much in our discourse with the religious, political conservatives, and each other - whether or not we are right or wrong? Monette will explore this topic and present her ideas for healthier, more meaningful discourse in her program, The Right Way to Be Wrong.
"Privilege, by nature, can blind us to the ways we harm others. Just as the religious majority, unwittingly, steps on our toes, we can often step on the toes of other minorities or women. This can lead to hurt feelings and anger directed at us as the toe steppers.
How should we react once our toe treading is pointed out to us?
What tools can you use to overcome the initial emotional backlash for said toe stepping?
Why is telling people to "Get steel toed boots" not an answer?"
Light refreshments will be served... see you there! :)
