Crossing Party Lines: Portland, OR

Website: Organizer's Website

Online event

Crossing Party Lines is proud to announce this exciting event featuring CPL Co-Founder and Executive Director Lisa Swallow, hosted by the Alliance for Peacebuilding and the U.S. Peace, Justice and Democracy Working Group.


Our brains are hard-wired for antagonism and strong emotion. Social discord can seem inevitable, and often leads to social conflict. Fortunately, there are practices for meaningful communication, behavior change, and emotion and bias management available to all. Join AfP on June 30th to learn about the neuroscience of conflict and approaches for its management. Our panelists will present on the science of breaking cycles of animosity, while offering practices for developing effective communication strategies and fostering relationships.


Mari Fitzduff, Professor Emerita, Heller School, Brandeis University and author of Our Brains at War: The Neuroscience of Conflict and Peacebuilding

Lisa Swallow, Executive Director of Crossing Party Lines, Inc and author of Yes, You CAN Talk Politics: A Workbook for Talking Across Party Lines
