"Always assume the person you are listening to knows something you don't"
Communities work best when there are conversations across divides.
Across race, religion, sexuality, economic capacity, health and so much more. We each have something to say and are all worth listening to.
This is why I am looking to launch Conversations.
Conversations will be a series of in-person debates and discussions across Havering. Held in a debate style, each event will consist of someone proposing and seconding an opinion, before we hear from opposition. We will then open the floor for short contributions and vote on the motion.
These conversations will be grown up, may be difficult for many to hear, and will be good natured.
It is only be coming together, to discuss our differences, that we can overcome them.
