What’s Next U.S.? Event: 11/17 on Tolerance
November 17, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC-5
Living Room Conversations and National Conversation Project are partnering with civic organizations around the world for a global SPEAK! campaign November 16-18 around the International Day for Tolerance. Describing SPEAK!, campaign developer CIVICUS says, “Never before has the world been so connected. And yet, as many of us look around our communities and countries, we seem increasingly divided… It’s no longer enough to speak to those who already agree with us; if we want real change, we need to speak with those who don’t agree with us.” Indeed, the tide of rising rancor and deepening division is not limited to America. This conversation event follows another deeply polarizing election in the United States, so our theme will be “What’s Next U.S.?” We’re encouraging Republicans, Democrats, Independents and others to come together across America to address our nation’s challenges.
This “Tolerance“ conversation was developed for this special event. There is unlimited room in this conversation as we will break into small groups in real-time following an introduction.
