Throughout our country, many experience sharp divisions and frequent disrespect from and toward people of differing perspectives and backgrounds from political leaders to everyday folks. What can people steeped in the nonviolent tradition, and deeply concerned about this schism, do to help bridge the communication gap and find some common ground?

Please join us in a day focusing on successful specific strategies and/or models, in an interactive format, of what we as individuals and within our groups can learn to provide us additional competence and confidence toward this communal healing.
