This month’s topic, IMMIGRATION IN AMERICA, will engage us in discussing values related to care, liberty, fairness, and community while giving us a chance to once again practice active listening and respect for others’ views.
As usual, we will begin at 6:30 PM with dinner and fellowship followed by an introduction to the topic, a review of our Ground Rules, and small group discussions. OPTIONAL: BRING A DISH TO SHARE (if you can)– keeping with the immigration theme, feel free to bring a food representing you or your relatives’ country of origin – or US region of origin.
Readings for this month (links below) include a piece from ProCon.org along with an article from the Better Angels organization on Immigration and the American Family. We are also going to discuss writer Jonathan Haidt’s moral matrices for Liberals, Libertarians, and Social-Conservatives. Jonathan Haidt is the author of the Righteous Mind and has also been featured on Better Angels podcasts.
