Bridging the Divide

The Center for Civil Dialogue and Policy was founded to combat political polarization and foster understanding around gun violence prevention. Based on research conducted with Boston University, our civil dialog program is significantly more effective at changing opinions and finding consensus than traditional debates.  We can bridge the divide by facilitating intimate community discussions around gun violence. The goal is not to “win” arguments, but to listen in order to create understanding and build common ground.

Since founding in 2005, over fifty discussions have been held with schools, universities, nonprofits, and faith groups across the country.

If you are interested in hosting a discussion or workshop with your organization please contact us below. We can accommodate both in-person and remote facilitation.
