Note new time for this event open to women and men.

Listening Cafes offer a place for people with different social and political views to come together to speak safely and listen closely to each other. In these conversations, we leave behind debate, judgment, and even the temptation to persuade. The intention is to learn where we have different opinions and shared interests, intentions, or goals.

Wondering if this is for you? If you can agree to the following Conversation Guidelines, we can almost promise that you will have a productive, insightful conversation!

Be curious and open to learning.
Show respect and suspend judgment.
Find common ground and appreciate differences.
Be authentic and welcome that from others.
Be purposeful and to the point.
Own and guide the conversation.
