Ahoua Kone
01:10:20
Three of us: hopeful but worried. the world is going down the tubes.
Michael Smith
01:10:32
less than enthused, unfortunately.
Lowell Rathbun
01:10:40
The victories buy us time. There are lots of brainwashed people in the country right now. Right now, I'm about 50-50 convinced that democracy will survive. I think that climate change is beginning to drive the division. Long story.

@Alex and @Lowell, my IAA-sponsored opponent spent most of her campaign funds on yard signs and radio ads. I don't think she has a campaign ground-game to do direct voter contacts.
Hope Williams
01:17:34

Lowell Rathbun
01:17:52

I can see Rachel signs Hand written, saying I don't have the big bucks of my opponents, but I have heart and love for Sequim!
Alex Fane
01:21:09
Like Cambridge Analytical

I’m proud to call all other union members, without regard race or gender: Brother and Sister.
Matthew Carter
01:45:14
We are living with the consequences of the Dems selling out unions starting in the 70s.
Linda Brewster
01:46:44
Matthew Carter you are so right!
Ella Sheppard
01:49:11
So happy that I do not Tweet and have decided that Facebook is not for me, even though I was told by my children that was the only way I could find out what was going on with my grandchildren.
Alex Fane

Lindsey Schromen-Wawrin
01:57:39
In tomorrow's primary election very few potential voters will vote. We've been out doorbelling (for Jesse Charles, LaTrisha Suggs, and my campaign) to mobilize new voters to participate. We'll do the same for the general, and your participation is welcome. Sign up form here: https://forms.gle/dVYPpQUkrvYh87bU8
Lindsey Schromen-Wawrin
01:58:15
(That's in Port Angeles precincts, sorry for not clarifying)
Lowell Rathbun
01:59:24
To Lindsey; How about if we candidates in both Sequim and PA have a get-together after the smoke from the primary clears?
Alex Fane
01:59:46
Sounds good, Lindsey!
Lowell Rathbun
01:59:55
Cool.
Lindsey Schromen-Wawrin
02:00:42
Lowell: yes to that. For anyone coming over to the Courthouse lobby at 8pm tomorrow, please feel free to join an after-party at the New Moon (Lincoln and 2nd).
Matthew Carter
02:00:48
Nearly everyone on the other side is not bad. They are not understood. Keep open mind, you may find they are right about some things.
Alex Fane
02:02:58
Matthew C: Yes, they are right in some things, but not in HOW they go about it.
Rachel Anderson
02:03:13
The information and guidance solidified a lot of what I thought in regards to attempting to bring people back together
Rachel Anderson
02:03:37
I found it useful!
Jessica Elofson
02:04:07
The fact that I am not the only person that thinks the way I do was so useful
Linda Brewster
02:04:23
Need some roleplays maybe????
Ella Sheppard
02:04:25
Background info. Suggestions for how to approach those who disagree.
France Giddings
02:04:41
How many more bills are being proposed to expanding voter rights (how much I focus on the bad news).
Ahoua Kone
02:04:43
too much about what we already knew - and not enough real life examples of how to combat lies
Alex Fane
02:04:45
How you make them feel, a take-away I can remember
Joanne Metroplos
02:04:55
Systematic review of misinformation/disinformation was useful It would be great to have sources for all the quotes and data.
Lowell Rathbun
02:05:19
The last slide is SOP for people outside of a cult to deal with cult members. Check with Steve Hassan. https://twitter.com/CultExpert?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor
Joyce Newport
02:05:19
The first hour of the presentation told me what I already know. The last 8 minutes provided platitudes about what we need to do to talk with those with whom we disagree. But I heard no tools to support those platitudes.
Vicki Lowe
02:05:35
I need to really think about the difference between misinformation and disinformation when talking/communicating with people.
Matthew Carter
02:05:36
So, we get propaganda from the left, which is no different than the garbage from the right. Let’s be honest, if we identify dis-information it does not matter which side it comes from.
Alex Fane
02:06:58
Tell us how to win our children who claim they are just independents to distance themselves from Trump'
Virginia White
02:08:08
i like your wanting to have peaceful discussion with others of a diffrent point of veiw
France Giddings
02:08:21
yes
Lindsey Schromen-Wawrin
02:08:23

Jessica Elofson
02:08:34
Yes jessica elofson
Ella Sheppard
02:08:36
Yes, totally!!
Alex Fane
02:08:54
Yes, we need to practice talking to those on the other side
Ellen Fetchiet LICSW
02:09:07
Good reaffirmation for. Most useful knowing how many of us are hearing this. Listening and validating what we hear from others that we've experienced can help us "join" others...
Tim Burns
02:09:30
yes, Tim Burns
Ella Sheppard
02:10:35
Thank you, Mark and Lisa. Appreciate time and effort. Look forward to the next Webinar. Have a great evening!!
Matthew Carter
02:16:11
Next question
Lindsey Schromen-Wawrin
02:17:26
Framing the question about the paradox of tolerance in regard to what the government can do is dodging the relevant issue of what we privately do around accepting white nationalism as having a valid platform to "debate." Seehttps://www.racefiles.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/No.-NOT-EVER.pdf
Lindsey Schromen-Wawrin
02:17:38
Sorry, here is the hyperlink: https://www.racefiles.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/No.-NOT-EVER.pdf
Lowell Rathbun
02:18:06
Hmmm.... ringing doorbells?
Betsy Robins
02:20:51
I’m not sure anyone I converse with would EVER move to a different position! They might think I was respectful or something, but they won’t ever agree with me. It is simply exhausting!
Lindsey Schromen-Wawrin
02:21:14
Yesterday while doornocking I had a long conversation with a covid denier. That wouldn't have happened if I wasn't going door to door. (But it was also a waste of my campaign time as I could have reached a lot of other voters with that time. That is why we need deep listening door knocking between election campaigns)
Lowell Rathbun
02:22:07
Lindsey, I totally agree!
Betsy Robins
02:23:26
I agree too! We tried to begin one, but lacked helpers!
Lindsey Schromen-Wawrin
02:23:51
Thank you Betsy!
Rachel Anderson
02:23:59
I became extremely disheartened when I was talking to my own family about my choice to run in an election, and my own family told me, "I don't think we're on the same team." I wasn't sure what to say other than, "I'm on the team of community and transparent government".
Vicki Lowe
02:25:00
It's lateral violence and discrimination. When those who are oppressed believe what their oppressor says about them.
Virginia White
02:25:04
hes trying to fit in it seems.
Betsy Robins
02:25:38
Oh Rachel, thank you for taking on the chore of converting your family too! It’s not easy. I have those family members too.
Alex Fane
02:26:44
Rachel, you are not alone. We are your friends, the family you chose to have.
Rachel Anderson
02:27:09
I doubt they'll be converted. Honestly, the pandemic has been so hard on everyone, my goal is to make people feel connected.
Alex Fane
02:27:58
Whatever it is that is happeing, it is spiritual, to help us understand, find, and appreciate our soul families.
Betsy Robins
02:27:59
Rachel, You are making a good go of it! You are a connector type of person
Lowell Rathbun
02:28:56
I like the metaphor that disinformation works like a virus. It infects minds. So maybe we start thinking about "vaccine" and how they might work.
Linda Brewster
02:29:04
More like playing Columbo from a curious one-down position...
Brent McFarlane
02:29:06
Political tai chi! Yea that’s it.
Rachel Anderson
02:30:22
A lot of the time, it feels like dealing with my kids. I may not like some people 100% of the time, and they might be aggravating, but I still love them and care about their well-being. It's exhausting but I can't help but feel like these are the same people that have been hurt before or just need someone to listen when no one else would.
Alex Fane
02:34:13
Rachel, you have admirable human compassion and understanding. Yes, keep listenting to them!
Virginia White
02:34:57
thankyou
Brent McFarlane
02:35:32
Thank you. Great work Mark!
Brent McFarlane
02:35:42
Thanks PSARA
Rachel Anderson
02:36:04
Thank you for the webinar!
Alex Fane
02:36:28
