Civic Genius, One America Movement, Search for Common Ground, and Convergence invite supporters and followers to join a special virtual conversation on the What’s, Why’s, and How’s of bringing Americans together to build trust and solve problems in a moment of toxic polarization.
In addition to exploring the similarities and differences of the approaches of each organization, topics will include:
- How we deal with division and opposition between people who accepted the outcome of the election and those who believe the election was stolen
- How we deal with the division industry, the people who profit from polarization and divisiveness
- Practical ways of diffusing challenging conversations
- Why the work we’re doing now will turn the corner for the country
