Civic Awareness: Improving Civil Discourse: The Science of Us vs. Them

From 10/13/22 7:00 pm until 10/13/22 8:00 pm

Cantigny Park and the League of Women Voters invite the public to their next Civic Awareness Series program on Thursday, October 13 7 pm.

Perhaps now more than ever, our democracy demands that each of us be willing to listen to others with whom we may not agree. Cantigny and the League of Women Voters welcomes Dr. Terry Wu, Ph.D. to present on “The Science of Us vs. Them.” Dr. Wu, a captivating speaker and storyteller, applies a neuroscience-based approach to helping us understand the “us vs. them” dynamic. The division, he says, happens automatically without our conscious awareness, creating aggression and hostility. Dr. Wu will share actionable ideas for bridging the “us vs. them” divide—first steps toward improving civil discourse in our communities and reducing anxiety around traditionally divisive issues.

This program is offered in person and online. Registration is not required for those attending in person at the Cantigny Park Visitors Center, and parking is free. Online participants should register below to receive a Zoom link.
