Limited Capacity seats available

Growing the new economy movement will require us to navigate divides in our communities whether its differences of opinion on strategy or historical imbalances of power and privilege. This "Bridging Divides" training is designed for people working in movement and community spaces who are seeking more strategies to engage people across divides, difference, or disagreement.

Led by Macky Alston of the Auburn Seminary, this "Bridging Divides" training will introduce you to a range of strategies to help people engage across divides with courage and grace, with the goal of improved, more just relations in diverse community. You will walk away with a range of successful strategies to listen, share, and be with people who do not see eye to eye, as well as a plan to engage difficult conversations with greater skill -- and to train leaders in your community to facilitate such conversations in group settings.  

The training is designed for 10-20 participants, who will be selected based this simple application. All CommonBound attendees are welcome to apply to attend. NEC staff will curate the final roster of participants with the help of Auburn Seminary.
