Webinar Series: Peacemaking in a Divided Age

Our nation has rarely felt more divided. We know that no matter the results of the upcoming election, our communities may still feel fractured and discord rule the day. But we know there’s a better way. Now more than ever, our nation needs peacemakers.

Join us for an alternative to the discord of the season as we uncover a different way: Peacemaking in a Divided Age. We’ll dive into the issues that matter and provide training on essential peacemaking skills in weekly webinars. We’ll explore our newest peacemaking resource, the Principles and Practices of Peacemaking. And we’ll step into the stories of the peacemakers who inspire us in our new, story-driven podcast, Undaunted: Conversations with Radical Peacemakers. Join us on this journey.

Thursday, October 29th 2:00-3:00 PM EDT


Navigating Division: Why We're Divided And What We Can Do About It

It’s no secret that our nation is divided. Each of us has felt it in our communities, places of worship, and even families. We’re quick to define ourselves by the group we’re in and refuse to listen to those outside. But when we do so, we lose the opportunity to collaborate for the common good and secure a shared future for all.

What’s behind our tendency to divide, and what can we do about it? Join us as we hear from Andrew Hanauer, President and CEO of the One America Movement. Andrew will walk us through the neuroscience of division, and offer practical steps on how to have tough conversations that lead us to joint action. If you’re looking for a guide on navigating the division in your community, join us.

Andrew Hanauer is the President and CEO of the One America Movement, an organization founded by faith and community leaders in the aftermath of the 2016 election to fight polarization. Under Andrew’s leadership, One America has launched projects that bring Americans together across divides to address race relations, opioids, poverty and religious differences across the country, from Utah, to Oklahoma, to California, to West Virginia, to some of our nation’s largest cities. In addition to running projects that unite Americans across divides, One America trains religious leaders on the dynamics of polarization and division.
