Getting Comfortable having Uncomfortable Conversations
with Billy Planer
Tues., 3/30 (10:30 am)
March 30 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am
America is so split that trying to speak across the divide feels impossible. Whether it is one-on-one, with friends, family or your community, discussions about race, politics or Israel seem to be too heated and contentious to have.
How can we have these important and necessary conversations without “all the heat?”
How can you practice self-care as you enter into uncomfortable conversations?
How can you rethink what success looks like during a difficult conversation?
Explore this topic with Billy Planer, founder of Etgar 36, which was established as a political and social justice summer program for Jewish teens. Since 2004, Etgar 36 has run three-day Civil Rights journeys to the American South for adults, teens, schools and organizations, engaging with the history of the Civil Rights movement and learning strategies and tools used to create change. To date, over 28,000 people (including dozens of our TBA High students) have been on an Etgar 36 journey!
