"Do you feel political polarization is increasing and affects your relationships? Have you blacklisted someone or been blacklisted because of your beliefs? Are you part of a group that dislikes another group?" asks Dennis. "We can break down social boundaries and explore what is behind the mindsets of others." In this talk-story, explore reaching out to people who seem different from you to build peaceful relations.
