Common Ground on the Hill presents Resisting Division, Creating Active Peace

This Traditions Week 3 Keynote Lecture will examine the critical role communication has played in fostering, sustaining, and laying the groundwork for inter-group violence throughout history. Drawing from fields including peacebuilding, neuroscience, social psychology, and marketing, Rachel Brown will explore how this same tool -- communication -- can be used to lead communities and societies away from violence and towards inclusivity, solidarity, and peace. We’ll see effective approaches from the U.S. and abroad, and collaboratively reflect on what each of us can do to prevent hate and dangerous speech from being used to divide our society, and instead create new space for peaceful action.
