Connecticut Public’s Civility Initiative focuses on ways to build stronger communities by connecting residents to conversations that foster understanding. On April 27, Connecticut Public's Lucy Nalpathanchil talks with Mónica Guzmán, Senior Fellow at Braver Angels and Wilk Wilkinson of Braver Angels about their work building bridges across differences. They share strategies everyone can use.

Mónica Guzmán is the author of I Never Thought of It That Way: How to Have Fearlessly Curious Conversations in Dangerously Divided Times. Guzman describes herself as "the proud liberal daughter of conservative parents."

Wilk Wilkinson, a conservative, is host of the podcast, Derate the Hate. He's a member of Braver Angels' We The People's Project.

Community Partners: Connecticut Public, Braver Angels, and the Hearst CT Media Group.
