Pro-Voice (Enhanced Edition)

How to Keep Listening When the World Wants a Fight

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Dialogue, Not Dogma
When Aspen Baker had an abortion at the age of twenty-four, she felt caught between the warring pro-life and pro-choice factions, with no safe space to share her feelings. 

This enhanced edition includes a video of Aspen sharing her personal story, but it also includes videos of the women and men who've been profoundly changed by the movement Aspen founded.  As you watch and listen, you will see how the Pro-Voice movement can be a game-changer.  Through deep listening, storytelling, and embracing gray areas, the movement has generated love, empathy and support on both sides of America's most controversial issue.  

In this hopeful and moving book, Baker describes how she and Exhale, the organization she cofounded, developed their “pro-voice” philosophy and the creative approaches they employed to help women and men have respectful, compassionate exchanges about even this most controversial of topics. She shows how pro-voice can be adopted by anyone interested in replacing ideological gridlock with empathetic conversation. Peace, in this perspective, isn't a world without conflict but one where conflict can be engaged in—fiercely and directly—without dehumanizing ourselves or our opponents.

Customer Reviews

A way to find common ground. Recommended

My wife and I enjoyed this well-written book. Ms. Baker writes authoritatively about a system that she has developed to help women help themselves by sharing their life stories in a non-judgemental setting of their peers. This concept has interesting potential for many other hot-button topics that have become extremely polarized.
