Martin Luther King Jr. observed that, “You have no influence over people who can sense your underlying contempt.” Yet how can we be free of contempt when we’re certain the beliefs and actions of another group or person are harmful and “wrong”? In this workshop, drawing on the principles of Nonviolent Communication, we will begin to explore how we can “speak truth to power” in a way that others can hear us---even
when they may have opposing views we find inaccurate, harmful, and challenging. Well be looking at: Red state/Blue state; gay marriage on the ballot; Issues "that divide us".

With guest Dian Killian, PhD, a CNVC Certified Trainer, founder and director of Brooklyn NVC and the Facilitate Change program and co-author of Connecting across Differences: A Guide to Compassionate, Nonviolent Communication and Urban Empathy: True Life Adventures of Compassion on the Streets of New York. A lifelong political activist and writer, Dian brings insights, inquiry, and interest to these current HOT topics.
