April Topic: Tribalism 101: Next Door Strangers

This Conversation begins with a 15-minute podcast Next Door Strangers.​ We invite you to listen prior to the Conversation.   

Tribalism: The behavior and attitudes that stem from strong loyalty to one’s own tribe or social group.

People on the left and right may disagree on many things, but they generally agree that “tribalism” is bad for our politics and our country. ​Although most people want communities where all people have dignity and respect, respectful interactions are often not what we see modeled in the media and in politics. ​How do we build strong and unified communities in a divisive time?   

Space is limited. Registration is required.
