Core Conversation 2: Bridge Building in Polarizing Times

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Can the work of bridge building be done without perpetuating harm? We know shallow appeals to unity often invalidate trauma and fail to account for the deep roots of polarization. Yet, as people of faith, we are called to build the beloved community beyond our ideological barriers. A panel of practitioners from a variety of fields will offer practical insight for navigating this work.
