In this discussion, you'll learn how to approach those with differing views so you can bridge the gap and learn how to integrate antiracism into your daily life—and teach others how, too.Kirsten Ivey-Colson is an attorney and a student of nonviolence communication (NVC), right speech, conflict resolution, and meditation.
