Join UUC’s new 4th Principle Dialogue Group as we engage in productive dialogue on issues raised in two races for seats on the UUA Board of Trustees. This year, two UUs are challenging two nominated candidates, and all four candidates have statements on the UUA website.

Our agenda is not to debate who should win but instead to speak personally about the issues that these candidate statements bring up. We will practice the listening skills that we have been learning. (They’re easy for newcomers to pick up.)

Previously, we discussed the book High Conflict and learned about generative dialogue. Now we’re practicing having good dialogue on issues that in other contexts often lead to heated exchanges. Drop-ins welcome.
