I recognize that for some, Thanksgiving and other holidays bring members of the family together who don’t agree on politics. You can ignore each other’s Facebook posts all year, but once you’re face to face, you know there’s a potential for a blow up. In case that’s what you’re looking at over the holiday weekend, here are a few resources for you:

The folks at the Family Dinner Project authored a post full of tips as well as ready-to-use strategies to diffuse tense situations: How to Survive Thanksgiving Dinner During Impeachment Talk

DemCast posted this guide which has both helpful resources as well as a good dash of humor: How to survive the holidays

President Obama tweeted out this helpful article from Vox:  Most people are bad at arguing. These 2 techniques will make you better.

I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving. Good luck!
