Allen Neighborhood Center has a grant to host workshops on topics dealing with Community and the Common Good.  The first workshop will be October 1, 9:30 am -12:30 pm and is on how to have difficult conversations, listen to the emotion behind opinions, and find common ground (or at least find a way to communicate and not cut people from your life).

The presenters will be Jennifer Cobbina-Dungy, who is a professor at the MSU School of Criminal Justice. She is the author of Hands Up, Don’t Shoot: Why the Protests in Ferguson and Baltimore Matter, and How They Changed America.  She will be joined by Jennifer Grau, president of Grau Interpersonal Communications and a member of the International Listening Association.

Event is limited to 30 participants and registration is required. Breakfast is included. Click here to complete the eventbrite registration
