Right now community gatherings are strained. People either talk about trivialities or separate into groups. When things start to hit our area, when we are affected by the changes, the groups will come together for their commonalities to ensure for justice for all. Right now, life is just happening. Results will change that to action.
Already I’ve heard rumblings like, “Well, I thought he’d be more presidential after the election” or “What will happen to my friends? They’ve always been here.”
I discovered some helpful suggestions for dealing with controversial issues at the University of Michigan. I hope we all find them useful.
What have you found helpful for your community to open up civil discussions?
of the people
by the people
for the people
talk to people
listen to people
share with people
together we stand
united for all
justice for all.
