How to Heal Our Divides

How to Heal Our Divides

By Brian Allain
“How to Heal Our Divides” is a project aimed at building awareness of organizations that are taking real action to address serious cultural divides: racial, political, religious, sexual orientation, immigration, and more. The project is not an attempt to gloss over serious problems or “make happy” but instead to highlight tangible efforts that are solving problems – actually healing divides in effective and practical ways.
