Event description
The What’s, Why’s and How’s of bringing Americans together to build trust and solve problems in a moment of toxic polarization.

About this event

Convergence, a host Partner of the America Talks (June 12 - 13) and National Week of Conversation (June 14 -20) invites supporters and followers to join a special, virtual conversation on the What’s, Why’s and How’s of bringing Americans together to build trust and solve problems in a moment of toxic polarization. The in-depth discussion about bridging, polarization and collaborative dialogue will be led by National Week of Conversation partners, and national experts, from Search for Common Ground, Civic Genius, One America Movement and Convergence.

The discussion will explore the similarities and differences of the approaches of each organization, as well as their opportunities and limitations for addressing America’s painful divisions. Participants will also get a behind-the-scenes look at America Talks and the National Week of Conversation.

Conversation Leaders:

David Eisner, CEO of Convergence, which brings national leaders and doers together across divides to build trust and fashion consensus solutions to intractable problems.

Michael Shipler, Vice President of Strategy for Search for Common Ground which implements peacebuilding and conflict transformation programming around the world.

Jillian Youngblood, Executive Director of Civic Genius, which engages grassroots participants and their elected officials on areas of common ground.

Daryl Lobban, Director of Strategic Partnerships of One America Movement, which helps equip faith communities to confront division and work together across political, racial, and religious divides.
