TED Talk from our members!
Posted by on December 18, 2017 at 11:52 AM
We are excited to promote Joan Blades (Living Room Conversations) and John Gable's (AllSides) TED Talk about freeing ourselves from our filter bubbles, which they presented last month at TEDWomen in New Orleans. Political opposites, Joan and John met at Bridge Alliance's initial planning meeting and became fast friends. Their talk discusses bridging gaps between people from opposite sides of the political spectrum and how conversations can create space for understanding and perhaps even friendships. Watch it here!
Living Room Conversations and AllSides created AllSides for Schools, a tool that helps educators foster civil dialogue, collaboration, and critical thinking among their students.
Joan and John are a wonderful example of what can be accomplished when we work together and focus on understanding first. We are proud to have been supported by them in the formation of Bridge Alliance and to being a catalyst for their connection!
