A Path Forward Dialogue Series

The National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC), along with our partners, invites you to join a dialogue series that brings together interfaith and secular communities, reflecting the cultural diversity in our region. By breaking down barriers and building new connections, we can address the divisiveness and polarization in our society.
Each event features a guided dialogue where groups will collaborate on achievable, positive social action. Together we will learn and practice how to communicate in a way that will restore a strong sense of community. We will walk away with the tools to continue these important discussions with our friends, colleagues, and neighbors.



The National Conflict Resolution Center is facilitiating virtual community cricles, providing an opportunity to meet virtually with our San Diego neighbors to build community, and to focus on the hope and resilience that will see us through these trying times. Join us for an interactive community conversation on Zoom, where you can share your story, hear from others, and lend support to one another.
