"6 Practical Dialogue Tips - What We've Learned from Talking to 5,000 Pro-Choice People"
Josh will share ERI's best tips for creating the kind of conversational environment where people are the most likely to change their minds. This is one of their most fun topics filled with great stories of conversations to illustrate the points.
Josh Brahm is the President and Co-Founder of Equal Rights Institute, a national organization training pro-life advocates to think clearly, reason honestly, and argue persuasively. Josh has worked in the pro-life movement since he was 18. After 12 years of full-time pro-life work he launched Equal Rights Institute to maximize his impact for the movement.
A sought-after speaker, Josh has spoken for more than 23,000 people in six countries and in 22 of the 50 states.
Josh’s primary passion is helping pro-life people to be more persuasive when they communicate with pro-choice people. That means ditching faulty rhetoric and tactics and embracing arguments that hold up under philosophical scrutiny.
He has publicly debated leaders from Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), Georgians for Choice, and one of the leading abortion facilities in Atlanta.
Josh also wants to bring relational apologetics to the pro-life movement. “Some pro-choice people will not change their mind after one conversation on a college campus. Some of them will only change their mind after dozens of conversations with a person they trust in the context of friendship.”
Josh is formerly the host of a globally-heard podcast turned radio/TV show, Life Report. He now hosts the Equipped for Life Podcast. He’s also written dozens of articles for LifeNews.com and the ERI blog.
He directed the first 40 Days for Life campaign in Fresno, resulting in up to 60 lives saved.
Josh has been happily married to his wife, Hannah, for 14 years. They have three sons, Noah, William, and Eli. They live in Charlotte, North Carolina.
