Unmasking Brain Injury is a project which puts a face on brain injury and allows those impacted by it to share their stories. See the masks and read the stories of brain injury survivors, caregivers, family members and professionals in this display.
Participate in a facilitated dialogue hosted, in part, by students in the COMX 205 Deliberative Democracy course. Students, staff, faculty, friends and community members are invited.
This event combines the National Week of Conversation and the Common Party. The National Week of Conversation is a week in which people all over the U.S. participate in conversations that prioritize understanding across political, social-economic and cultural divides. The Common Party seeks to bring our country back together through the celebration of our overwhelming commonality.
We can turn the tide of rising rancor and deepening division. Each person who listens to understand the other tips the scales toward a stronger future for our nation. Within conversations – and the relationships they build – is the hope for mending the frayed fabric of America by bridging divides.
The National Week of Conversation is a project of Bridge Alliance Education Fund, staffed by volunteers from AllSides, Listen First Project, National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation, National Institute for Civil Discourse, Living Room Conversations, and Big Tent Nation. In October 2017, a group of 20 leaders was hosted by Chicago Community Trust to design a national conversation project. 2018 is the inaugural year of the National Week of Conversation.
The Common Party is a non-political social movement based in Philadelphia that is working to bring people back together in these divisive times through the celebration of our overwhelming commonality. The non-profit organization produces web content to promote the values of civility and tolerance, and conducts dialogue and speaker programming to increase trans-partisan interaction and understanding.
Your local hosts are the Montana Institute for Democracy, Phi Theta Kappa and students from COMX 205 Deliberative Democracy.
