The Parley: Woke Culture & The Internet

The ‘woke era’ has given us much needed awareness of social issues and a stronger sense of social justice.

More than ever we are aligning ourselves with social causes, identities and values, however, sometimes these issues collide, creating conflict over ‘higher ground’ especially in digital spaces.

When taken too far, online arguments devolve into shaming and pile-ons by online vigilantes – the digital equivalent of a puritanical, pitchfork-wielding crowd. Learning to understand the other human being on the other side of the screen and to communicate without spiraling into harm creation could be key to improving the way we all speak and understand. So join us as we help you and each other to find uncommon ground, right here, at The Parley. Stay tuned!
