Event: Webinar – “Our Challenge: Breaking Through Fear and Hate to Forge a New Way”; webinar; recording; available on demand.
Venue: online
About: In our current dangerous ‘political’ climate, we need to stretch ourselves – to better understand how and why “the other half” of people think and act the way they do, and better understand evidence of our own biases that can be part of the problem. This webinar presents a big picture framework that can be helpful in our efforts to confront violence and heal our broken world.  Presented by MPT’s co-founder, Peter Dougherty. This webinar took place in May 2021 for online viewing.
