Belonging is an essential need for every person. And, creating greater belonging is the main ingredient for community thriving and healthy democracy. But what do we do when our ability to foster belonging reaches its limits? Or when we are frustrated with being excluded from the communities that profess to be welcoming? How do we intentionally create greater belonging in order to reduce toxic polarization and cultural divisions of all kinds? In this video, YOUnify, Living Room Conversations, and documentary filmmaker, Katrina Dawn Miller (This is [Not] Who We Are*), as we share tools and talk about how to create greater belonging in our communities and beyond.
*The documentary film This is [Not] Who We Are explores what happens when a self-professed welcoming community has its welcoming limits tested.
