#NN21 @digitalsista @Janja_Lalich @RBernsteinLMFT @_indoctrination From @RBernsteinLMFT
Need to reintroduce civility to the conversation.

Remember that people can get involved with cult movement for community, due to fear...

Approach them from a place of compassion.

First, goal is to get them to re-engage with you, not deprogram.

#NN21 Keynote: Rebalancing The Supreme Court: Why Progressives Must Take Back the [Stolen] Court to Save our Democracy with @SenTinaSmith @MondaireJones @RepBarbaraLee & Sarah Lipton-Lubet of @TakeBacktheCt. (via @actdottv) twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1… We have a 6/3 far right hyper-partisan super majority. It is hostile to democracy itself.
