Hosted by: Empathy Tent
building a culture of empathy
As part of the Empathy Tent and National Week of Conversations Project we hold a Democracy Circle (Empathy Circle) on How might we bridge the Political Divides in the USA? We invite participants from all points on the political spectrum to take part.
Mending the frayed fabric of America by bridging divides one conversation at a time. Americans of all stripes are stepping up to address the growing cultural crisis of hyper-polarization and animosity across divides. Together we can turn the tide of rising rancor and deepening division with widespread conversations.
