Respect + Rebellion @ BYU 2018-19
Respect + Rebellion | BYU | Provo, UT

In the last words left to us by United States Senator John McCain, he calls America “a country made of ideals whose continued success is the hope of the world…” Well, if we’re going to succeed that, we’d sure better up our game! In partnership with the BYU Law School’s Conflict Resolution Center, we’re proud to present a year of programming to explore innovative ways of bridging differences across ideological division.

Please make plans to join us for three events this fall. On Thursday, October 25th we’re hosting Former Members of Congress Patrick Murphy (D, FL) and David Jolly (R, FL), in a discussion with 2016 presidential candidate Evan McMullin exploring Why Gridlock Rules Washington. Before that campus-wide event, on Friday, September 28th, we’re inviting BYU students across the ideological spectrum to participate in an interactive workshop, “Left + Right, RESPECT + REBELLION: Subversive friendships in divided times,” online here. Finally, we’ll finish the fall in November with an Arbinger Institute workshop introducing the concept of the Outward Mindset – seeing people as people (left, right – whoever). Check back for more specifics soon.

Why Gridlock Rules Washington:
Jolly, Murphy, McMullin

From the halls of Congress to hometowns everywhere, political conversations are entirely predictable these days – the feuding sides refuse to engage in meaningful, respectful hard-fought disagreement and problem solving, instead preferring to lob grenades at “the enemy.” Time for a respectful rebellion.

left + right, RESPECT + REBELLION:
Subversive friendships in divided times

Join liberal and conservative friends (who disagree on big stuff) in a conversation about why liberals and conservatives are better together than apart – and have fun while you do it. Really. Oh, and we feed you. Bring a friend who disagrees with you on politics – and you both get a t-shirt! (If you end up marrying them, we’ll pay for the honeymoon.)

NOVEMBER 30 | NOON - 1:30 PM | 205 JRCB (LAW SCHOOL)
The Transformational Power of the Outward Mindset

This interactive workshop explores a shift to an outward mindset and equips participants with tools to build self-awareness, accountability, and collaboration – moving from an inward mindset (a myopic focus on personal objectives) to an outward mindset (taking into account one’s impact on others). Sounds like something we could use a little more of in America?
