Midterms looming and politics leaving you frustrated? Do you find your crazy liberal uncle impenetrable, or your conservative niece baffling? Have you found yourself hissing in incomprehensible rage at your neighbor’s campaign signs? Or maybe, you think people being that at-odds is itself just maddening?
“If it has gotten to this point, then you should know there is another way,” says Keith Kozloff, of Takoma Park. “That you can understand someone without having to persuade them.”
Kozloff is a volunteer with Better Angels, a national nonprofit founded with the express purpose of getting people who can’t stand each other’s politics at the Thanksgiving dinner table to sit down and talk politics — and really listen to one another.
