[PAST EVENT] THANKSGIVING TOOLKIT: How to Handle Politically-Motivated Family Conflict and Take of Yourself
Consider this ?open office hours? with faculty to discuss impending family visits: Do they have political views that make you feel vulnerable and distressed? How do you engage with people you love, yet disagree with? How do you take care of yourself in the meantime?
Topics may include:
- Strategies for discussing privilege
- How to show solidarity with those who are made especially vulnerable by the election results, including: undocumented immigrants, people of color, queer and trans people, people with disabilities.
- Organizations and resources to pass on to family
- How to deescalate conversations
This conversation is open to all.
