Building Relationships that Heal - A listening approach to justice & reconciliation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will demonstrate practical strategies to promote social change through listening and honest conversations.  Special emphasis will be put on how concepts of faith, justice & reconciliation require active listening.  Relationship building will be encouraged to extend well beyond this event.

Too often, attempts at reconciliation or justice result in the polarization of people into camps or groups that talk at, but don't listen to, each other.  Listening is essential to change.

Our focus & model is built for the South - and racial reconciliation is a major component of that model.  We will show this as part of the facilitation, as Kenny will have a partner, Brian Dickey, sharing his perspective as an African-American as part of the session - and how they built a healing relationship.
