The escalation of political violence of the past few weeks has left many of us feeling hopeless and scared. Across its history, the U.S. has faced few crises like this one. How did we get here? How do we grapple with deep divides and violent threats? What can each of us do to move the country toward a peaceful future?
To many, even after a hopeful Inauguration and peaceful transfer of power, it feels like we are inevitably sliding toward more tensions and violence. But violence is a choice, and so is peace.
Join Search for Common Ground on Wednesday, January 27th at 2:30 pm ET for a discussion with Shamil Idriss and Cynthia Miller-Idriss, two world-renowned experts on peacebuilding and violent extremism—who also happen to be married. They will discuss the origins of this wave of extremist violence, how peacebuilding can heal the United States, and suggest practical steps for each of us to take in building a country where we can live in community—separated by our differences but grounded in justice, equality, and respect.
