Join the conversation via this Zoom link. Many people sense that something is broken in society: surveys show about half of young adult Americans are lonely; opioid addiction, suicide, gun violence, ethnic tension and depression have been rising; we face rapid change from a globalized economy, cell phones and social media, and uncertainty about our future health and wealth. Our social fabric seems to be shredding. Others observe that the social fabric of our communities and nation was never really woven to include everyone in the first place. Yet, there have been times when people looked past their surface differences and came together as neighbors to support each other. How might we work together to build connections that allow everyone to feel recognized, respected and valued?
