Political tensions have created a heightened sense of division in our country, our state, and even among family and friends. Please join us at a community forum in the 47th Ward, featuring Facing History and Ourselves, for a practical discussion on how and why we need to stay engaged in conversations on difficult topics.
Shawn Healy, Ph.D., Director of the McCormick Foundation's Democracy Program, will share historical perspectives on how increasing polarization affects our ability to engage with one another civilly.
Sarah Shields, Program Associate at Facing History and Ourselves, will facilitate an interactive discussion sharing strategies for engaging others with civility and respect as we seek to ease tension and participate effectively in our democracy.
This forum is free and open to all members of the community.
