Lum Discusses “Compromise in Times of Division” on Here & Now

On Monday March 26, 2018, Robin Young (from WBUR’s Here & Now) spoke with Divided Community Project Director Grande Lum regarding the Divided Community Project, Director Lum’s time as Director of DOJ’s Community Relations Service, and  ideas for compromise in times of division.  Here’s a short description from WBUR:

In a time of deep divisions, changes are being proposed at one federal agency that aims to heal those divisions and broker compromise: the Community Relations Service, an agency within the Department of Justice.

President Trump’s latest budget proposal calls for it to be transferred within the DOJ, and its former director under President Obama, Grande Lum, says that would gut the agency.

Here & Now’s Robin Young speaks with Lum (@GrandeLum) about his concerns about the agency’s future, and what it takes to reach compromise and heal divisions.
