Marijuana Legalization: A WeListen Staff Discussion

Marijuana Legalization Flyer Marijuana Legalization Flyer
This session of WeListen is open to all UM staff members. All voices and views are welcome and lunch will be provided!

RSVP here: http://myumi.ch/6QKOZ

Join us at this WeListen Staff Session to learn about the debate surrounding marijuana legalization and to participate in small group discussions about this complex topic. Our aim is to bring liberals, conservatives, libertarians- everyone across the political spectrum- together for constructive conversation. The goal of WeListen discussions is not to debate or argue, but to understand the views and values of others and to learn from their perspectives. The session will begin with a brief content presentation to provide a basic understanding of the topic. No specific level of knowledge is required to participate in WeListen discussions.


By participating in WeListen sessions, staff members will:
- Expand understanding of a prominent political topic
- Practice discussing difficult topics with others,
- Gain openness to new ideas and perspectives,
- Learn to productively challenge an idea, and
- Form a sense of community among fellow staff members.
