A Civic Virus Wreaking Havoc on our Nation’s Health: Polarization is the Wrong Diagnosis. A Conversation with Rich Harwood, President and Founder of the Harwood Institute
February 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This 2022 report by Rich Harwood reveals that Americans don’t feel polarized or antagonistic toward one another. They feel isolated and disoriented, like they are trapped in a house of mirrors with no way out. They are in the grips of a perilous fight or flight response. In a society that is breaking apart, we must give people safe passage to hope. There is no quick fix, but there are proven steps that can help us move forward. This report shows how, “We have a choice in how we respond to the civic virus. We can surrender to false notions of polarization and give up, or we can commit ourselves to rebuilding this country and finding ways to create a new path forward together.”
