Having A Willing Partner On The Other Side

A few weeks ago, our co-founder Joan Blades wrote you about the elections–and our brand-new “What’s Next U.S.? (Post-Midterms 2018)” Living Room Conversation and Guide.

This week, we offer you a short film of Joan and five other deeply thoughtful people having that very Conversation. It’s full of wisdom, so I’m finding it hard to choose my favorite quote. But here’s one of my favorites:

One of the biggest things that I’ll point out in having any conversation like this is having a willing partner on the other side….I believe I’ve found five other willing partners to have this conversation with.

The video is just under four minutes long–you’ll find it here, at the top of our “Watch and Listen” videos and podcasts page.

Does it inspire you? We hope if it does you will share it. That really matters to us. Share all our resources with others you want to inspire–and share this video!

Then feel free to tell us what inspires you about the video so we can do more of it!

Last, if the video inspires you to host your own Conversation, please let me know. We’d love to help! We want thousands of people to have Conversations. Or see our Events page and join one of the Conversations we have organized for you.

Thanking you as our willing partner in healing divides,
Beth G. Raps, Phd
Development Partner
