Clemson Area Better Angels Red/Blue Workshop- Sat., Jan. 25th
Clemson Area Better Angels is partnering with the Pastoral Care Committee at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church to offer an amazing all day workshop on January 25 at HTEC.

Participants will speak openly about their political beliefs and to listen attentively the other side in order to find areas of common ground.
