People Beyond Politics™

People Beyond Politics™ (PBP) is a program I designed to help guide polarized conversations towards more understanding. I lead workshops and customize to the needs of the group, and I periodically facilitate more informal conversations at a wine bar.

Sign up for our monthly newsletter to stay informed about events, new resources, insights, and practical tips. The practical tips are only available to those who sign up for the newsletter.

We update the PBP website regularly with valuable information from other sources (see Resources). The information provided is relevant to any interaction, not just political conversations.

I’ve attended several sessions led by Sharon, and each has provided strong value. Most recent was a session that included developing a personal leadership statement. I was shocked at how effective and efficient the process was! I should have been less surprised—through her personal connection to the cause, passionate exploration of resources, and earnest delivery of all that she has learned and synthesized, Sharon truly is in the vanguard of the bridge-building form of civic activism.
