"Ever felt like you had to choose between your political convictions and a friendship? Or that you had to hide what you believe to protect family ties?  

During what promises to be a divisive election year, MPR News and the nonprofit organization Braver Angels are partnering to bring Minnesotans Talking Sense, an online and in-person platform to help people have hard conversations, better.  

Talking Sense will teach Minnesotans how to think through these challenging conversations in advance, without letting the need to “win” and change minds stand in the way of preserving important relationships. Talking Sense wants to help people develop a deeper understanding of where their friends, family members, coworkers and neighbors are coming from, even when we disagree, and to lay the groundwork for additional conversations and connections in the future.

MPR News host Angela Davis talks about the new Talking Sense project and asks experts how media contributes to political division, how we can minimize its impact on our most important relationships and how to navigate challenging political conversations over holiday dinner."
