STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY EFFORTS TO TRANSFORM DIVISION INTO ACTION
By divided community, we mean a community with conflicts that could potentially polarize its residents, such that people stop listening, tensions simmer, and, in regrettable instances, some “final straw” incident triggers civil unrest and disorder.
No nation, including our own, can escape such tests.
Through this project, we hope to synthesize insights for collaborative approaches to community division; provide counsel to local leaders based on these insights; and help local leaders translate these principles into practice in local communities throughout the nation.
