BYU Law School’s Conflict Resolution Center brings Respect + Rebellion to Brigham Young this fall. On Friday, September 28th, we’re inviting politically diverse students from across campus to join both liberal- and conservative-leaning friends (who disagree on big stuff) in a conversation about why disagreeing Americans are better together than apart – and have fun while you do it. Really. Oh, and we feed you.

Take the dare: 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.) Send us a picture of the two of you and you’ll also get backstage passes to meet former Members of Congress Patrick Murphy and David Jolly and 2016 presidential candidate Evan McMullin when they come to BYU on October 25th.

Learn more about additional Respect + Rebellion events on campus this fall here.

The interactive event begins with lunch (our treat!) and will feature Dr. Jacob Hess (a conservative Mormon) and Liz Joyner (a liberal, poorly-attending Episcopalian) who agree completely that we’ve forgotten that respectful disagreement across differences is exactly what makes America great. They’ve agreed on most things when it comes to building this “Respect + Rebellion” project, and they agree on very little when it comes to American policy.  They’ll be sherpas in a journey to better understand both liberals and conservatives and to imagine what might happen if we got back in the business of duking it out with each other as respectful opponents, rather than mortal enemies. They’re both certain that by sharing divergent perspectives, we’re less bored, more interesting and might actually solve a problem or two.

Jacob and Liz do apparently agree on eye-wear design. That must be why they like each other.

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.

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?
