Talking Together: Strengthening our Communities through Conversation

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 discuss the upcoming GVSU Civil Discourse Symposium with John Noltner, photographer, storyteller and founder of 𝐴 𝑃𝑒𝑎𝑐𝑒 𝑜𝑓 𝑀𝑦 𝑀𝑖𝑛𝑑, and Dr. Lisa Perhamus, director of the GVSU Padnos/Sarosik Center for Civil Discourse.

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.
