Maybe you already have a dynamic agreeable disagreeing relationship. Maybe you feel inspired to start one. Either way, tell us all about it here.

A Conversation Dare: Begin a Subversive Friendship

TreasonHave you noticed how people like (more and more) to hang out with people that think pretty-much-like-they-do?

How boring is that? If you really want to be counter-cultural, join those crossing the cultural divide WITHOUT a pitch-fork.

Take our conversation dare today by reaching out to your political opposite (or someone who disagrees with you substantially) – inviting them to coffee, or to grab something to eat, or just to meet-up for a conversation: “I’d like to better understand where you’re coming from” is a great place to start – making sure to follow your curiosity, and focus discussion on deepening understanding together.

This may be hard. This will be hard. And if you don’t have a subversive friendship yet, no fear. Make one. Post about it. Reach out. Be bold. Be a rebel.

When you’re done, take a picture! And with your conversation partner’s permission (we’re assuming you’ve got it when you upload the photo), we’ll share your moment with the world. You can upload a picture below, along with a description and any take-away’s that came out of your conversation (or from your ongoing friendship). Share on social media under #subversivefriendship and #respectandrebel.

Whether it’s lifelong or brand new, share the story of your Subversive Friendship here:
