A key part of voting and coming to a decision to do so is having civil discourse on candidates, topics, and other key factors that are taken into account when someone decides to vote. Although SVEC Tarrant will not host or endorse any medium of direct discussion on a platform, we aim through working with our head organization, March to the Polls, to stimulate engaging and productive discussions both inside and outside of the classroom.
Through SVEC Tarrant, we will facilitate discussions that will:
Promote factual, educational, and concrete resources and methods of conversing about the electoral process and politics through March to the Polls classroom visits.
Teach students how to be self-aware of public discourse on social media platforms and how to have a productive conversation
Provide students with techniques to de-escalate a differing opinion or conversation to have a collective and productive discussion.
