Public Lecture: Faith, Race & Politics: Can empathy help bridge our divides in a polarized world?

Christy Vines has dedicated herself to advancing empathy in leadership, culture, and spiritual life. In this public lecture, she will discuss her work on understanding why, as humans living in a dense and diverse society, we remain divided over long-standing issues like religion, race, and politics. She will unpack how empathy can help us not only understand one another better, but also heal our human propensity towards division, dehumanization, and hate. 


Co-Sponsored by the Deliberative Citizenship Initiative, Office of the Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer, Dean Rusk International Studies Program, Chaplain’s Office, and Public Lectures Committee.
