The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound is pleased to announce our inaugural Community Conversation event. As an organization dedicated to fostering collaboration, engagement, and inclusion, we strive to realize a vision where everyone in our region has the opportunity to thrive in communities that are sustainable, equitable, and resilient.

In selecting our first Community Conversation theme, we were struck by the concerning trend of increased polarization across our communities locally and nationally. This is why we are thrilled to welcome Mónica Guzmán, a journalist and author dedicated to fostering fearlessly curious conversations across divides to build understanding in dangerously polarizing times.

Mónica Guzmán is a bridge builder, journalist, and entrepreneur who lives for great conversations sparked by curious questions. A Senior Fellow for Public Practice at Braver Angels, Mónica discusses her book I Never Thought of It That Way: How to Have Fearlessly Curious Conversations in Dangerously Divided Times. Drawing from her experiences with cross-partisan conversations, she shares strategies to better understand and learn from people whose worldviews are different from or even opposed to yours.

Join community members from all around our region for a fireside chat with Mónica Guzmán, joined by Renee Radcliff Sinclair, President and CEO of TVW and board member of the Community Foundation. Together, we will explore Mónica’s experiences and strategies for better understanding and learning from those with differing or even opposing views. Then, join us for a reception after the event to connect with Mónica and others.
