At a time when America feels like it is ripping apart at the seams, there is a pressing need for civil conversation and relationship-building. Please join us for an event that involves two components: an interactive, in-person panel led conversation on March 23rd about how we can see the humanity in one another across differences which will integrate highlights from the award-winning documentary, Reunited States; and a corresponding online viewing of the full documentary that you can view at your convenience between March 20-26th

On March 23rd, we will hear from three panelists who hold divergent perspectives as we engage in civil conversations with one another about how we can work together to build trust in and across our communities. This conversation will be a space for collective reflection about how we can translate feelings of mistrust and frustration into bridge-building action steps. For those who view Reunited States in advance, the film may inspire solution-oriented ideas regarding some of the key issues facing the United States today.

INT 100/201 approved!

This event also appears on the main events calendar tagged as academic, civil, discourse, hauenstein, kaufman, and wgvu.
