Interfaith America Podcast Discussion: Why do we treat people as 'other'?
Led by Ivy Breivogel (she/her), Director of the Ripple conference, Graduate Intern, Elon University

We will listen to the Interfaith America Podcast episode 3 (described below). Throughout the podcast and following the end, we will have roundtable discussion about first reactions, takeaways, reflections, and critiques. Feel free to bring with you an art project to work on while we listen.

"Why do we treat people as 'other'? How do we connect with people with whom we profoundly disagree? Law professor john a. powell (who spells his name in lowercase in the belief that we should be 'part of the universe, not over it, as capitals signify') holds the Robert D. Haas Chancellor’s Chair in Equity and Inclusion and is a Professor of Law, African American Studies, and Ethnic Studies at University of California, Berkeley, where he is also the director of the Othering & Belonging Institute. In a deeply personal conversation with Eboo, powell relates how he embarked on a spiritual quest, endured divisions within his family and became a profound advocate for belonging and 'bridging,' a term he uses to describe building connections with others. 'Wherever you start bridging is where you start growing,' powell says."
