Local Depolarize Chico group worked to start healing the political rift in Chico.

At the Thursday Night Market, people were asked to separate themselves into labels they identified with like veterans, vegans, farmers, students and many more.

They were then asked to place a ball in a basket from their group for every question they answered with yes.

For example, guests placed a ball in the basket. If they relate with passion for dancing they’d do it in public.”

All done in efforts to provide an, “experiential common ground, rather than just a political common ground.”

Kate McCarthy, event speaker, said, “Hoping to show people that they have more in common with others in the community than they think.”
