Finding Common Ground Within Today’s

Divisive Political Landscape


Political and social divisiveness permeates national and local news every day. While the issues are complex, finding shared values is possible.


“Beyond Political Polarization:Finding Common Ground for the Common Good” April 12    7:15-9:15 a.m.

St. Paul Town and Country Club at Marshall & Otis Avenues

Presented by Minneapolis City of Lakes Rotary Club,

St. Paul Sunrise and Woodbury Rotary Clubs


Presenter Bill Doherty, PhD, is a University of Minnesota Professor of Family Social Science and a marriage and family therapist. Dr. Doherty successfully leads de-polarization workshops throughout the country through Better Angels, a national bipartisan citizen’s movement, dedicated to depolarization and unifying our divided nation by bringing liberals and conservatives together to understand each other beyond stereotypes and to form working alliances. The upcoming session will explore how growing partisan divide over political values is paralyzing families
and communities. The forum will offer new understandings and strategies for initiating conversations that focus upon learning how to respect the integrity and worth of every individual’s views.
