NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — “There will be people that are joyous and want to get up and dance on the rooftops, and then there will people who are really feeling like it's the end of the word," active church member of the First Unitarian Universalist Church in Niagara Falls Betsy Diachun said. "That’s just gonna keep us separated even farther.”

So, Betsy Diachun is hosting a “Post Election Detox” event in hopes of diffusing tensions this election season.

“We came up with the idea to put this together because we know people, and have people in our congregation, who are friends or partners of people who vote in another way," Diachun said. "And they seems to be quite hard pressed to find somebody they can talk to about their own beliefs and their own way of voting.”

So Diachun is inviting everyone to come to the church on Main Street Wednesday to talk.. and listen.

“I envision it as people talking, arguing maybe, but understanding the other side too.”

The Post Election Detox event takes place from 4 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday.

“It’s just gonna be a place where you can relax a little bit, and really maybe state your feelings that you couldn’t state at home.”
