The democratic process is underway across the country, and standing up for a free and fair election has never been more important. Even as we get out the vote and support a fair election process, we must also ask ourselves: who do we want to be the day after the election? How will we build a more united country in this divided time?
Below are some of IFYC’s favorite resources from our partner organizations supporting precisely this work. These tools can be useful in a variety of contexts – individually, in a religious community, in a classroom, or in a workplace. You could use some of these resources to support a generative group discussion or a kick-off one-on-one conversation, or just focus on personal skill-building.
No matter what you do, keep focused on the question of healing – where do you see deep divides in our country? How can you help bridge those divisions?
IFYC is always eager to hear about your work – please share your stories on the action and conversations you take when bridging divides in the next few weeks and months!
