We speak with Dr. Lisa Perhamus, director of the GVSU Padnos/Sarosik Center for Civil Discourse, and Kyle Kooyers, associate director of the GVSU Kaufman Interfaith Institute

Monthly we focus on Talking Together: Strengthening our Communities through Conversation, a dialogue initiative aimed at interrupting polarization and investing in the principles of civil discourse and respectful conversation.

This morning we speak with Dr. Lisa Perhamus, director of the GVSU Padnos/Sarosik Center for Civil Discourse, and Kyle Kooyers, associate director of the GVSU Kaufman Interfaith Institute.

Talking Together is a partnership between the Padnos/Sarosik Center for Civil Discourse, Kaufman Interfaith Institute, Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies, and WGVU Public Media.
