It is important to learn about hot topics of today and how to speak about them with others in a way that is respectful and open-minded. In today’s virtual world, there is a challenge to come together and communicate regarding controversial social issues. Focusing on inclusivity and different perspectives, Dialogues Initiatives provides exposure to the experiences and perspectives of people on both sides of an issue through careful education and interactive deliberation.
