It’s up to us to make sure lies are no longer the glide path to power and profit for demagogues and manipulators who will use them to destroy our democracy without hesitation.

Sign up now for our latest training to be prepared to:

  • Counter “The Big Lie” about the election that inspired the insurrection;
  • Make sure that January 6th is a day that lives in infamy, and is not allowed to disappear down the memory hole;
  • Deconstruct and respond to right-wing media spin and lies about Qanon and Impeachment;
  • Take action that will help create consequences and accountability in defense of truth; and
  • Respond to the right-wing weaponization of the Unity appeal. Unity isn’t impunity.

You'll leave our training with:

  • A deeper understanding of how demagogues exploit the needs we all have for meaning, identity, and safety, as well as changes in our media landscape that have accelerated the spread of dangerous conspiracy theories and disinformation;
  • Communication skills to prompt self-reflection, de-escalate tensions, and uncover the root of someone’s motivation or concern; and
  • Mindfulness and self-care techniques to stay hopeful, inspired, nurtured and grounded in chaotic times.

Upon registration, you'll receive the information for joining the virtual training. A recording and materials will be made available to all participants (even if you can't make it live). Contact Dave & Erin with any questions prior to the event: 412-370-5247 or

About the trainers:

Long before 2016, HearYourselfThink Co-founders Dave and Erin Ninehouser recognized that right-wing propaganda was poisoning the public channels of communication and posed a grave threat to our democracy. They founded the HearYourselfThink Project in 2011 to expose the demagogues and begin to deprogram America from media indoctrination.

They come with years of experience in grassroots organizing, issue advocacy, and political communications in the Fox and talk radio saturated Rustbelt of Western Pennsylvania. Their training shares insights into how to engage people with more-light-less-heat conversations that can “puncture the propaganda” and move the interaction out of the reactive mind and into the reflective mind.

The Beyond Polarization Project was founded by Charlie Rebich. A long time conflict resolution mediator, sales coach and mindfulness instructor, Charlie combined these skills to help people with the communication and self-care skills to transform partisanship in their relationships and communities. Charlie has worked with hundreds of individuals, organizations and communities.
