Transformative Conversations to Bridge Divides

We live in a polarized society, with parties and ideologies creating divisions and complicating relationships between people with differing beliefs. Even religion has been used to drive us apart. Political conversations stir up strong emotions, and as a result many of us avoid engaging in tough conversations with people we disagree with, especially with loved ones or those we see on a daily basis.

NETWORK staff will teach you steps to a healthy conversation and other tips for having difficult, transformative conversations.
