Real change through real conversation.
The mission of SMART Politics is to help progressives use Radical Civility to communicate more productively and persuasively with conservative voters without compromising our ideals or values.
We want to create a safe space.
SMART Politics is founded on the idea that all people are capable of changing their minds about politics. However, when individuals feel they or their beliefs are under attack, they will dig in and not consider alternative perspectives. To encourage real opinion change, we must first make people feel safe and accepted.
