Communicating across the aisle; Kate Lovelady, Leader

By this Sunday we should know who the next President of the United States will be. The election, as elections always seem to do, highlighted and sometimes even exaggerated differences among Americans as individuals, as well as between groups. So now what? How can we come back together after this long period of partisanship so that we can solve some of the problems we face? Using some of the recent work in moral psychology, we’ll explore the similarities and differences between liberal and conservative out-looks and to suggest ways that each of us can communicate better with people who see things from a different angle.
