    • Staying curious and asking questions. We all have biases. That’s the way people are. But it’s important to be aware of your conscious and unconscious biases, and to understand why you believe what you do and make the assumptions you make. Then, from there be curious. Seek out information and opinions from a variety of different sources. Maybe they will confirm your beliefs or maybe they will modify them, but either way you will be better informed. The second part is to understand why people who have different opinions hold their views. Try to discover that and then see if you can respect their views, even if you disagree with them. And lastly, don’t vilify them.

    • We think the 2020 election is a call to action for people to learn about the issues.  But that’s not the end.  Whoever is elected, with whatever platform they have, we believe people should continue to stay informed and engage in productive, robust discussions around political issues which don’t descend into the sort of mud-slinging, outrage-fueled debates we’ve become so used-to online. Civil discourse is integral to our democracy and we want The Venn to be the place where people know they can come to for just that.
