Carol Reimers It was a great pleasure to have Dr. Terry Wu speak to the League of Women Voters. His presentation on “Us vs. Them” fit perfectly with our campaign “Engaging our Differences for a Better Community.” His insights into how people perceive and react to opposing opinions are extremely helpful for all of us to consider as we talk to each other. Terry is especially effective with breaking down the aspects of what may divide us. This naturally leads to our discovery of how to listen and learn from each other even when we disagree. Personally, it opened up new considerations to me as I interact with family, friends and other citizens. As our country heads into a heated election season this fall, it is vital that we utilize the information and tools Dr. Wu offers. Let’s cross the divide and begin to communicate in a civil and thoughtful manner. ~ Carol Reimers, President, The League of Women Voters of Connecticut
