In this roundtable discussion, we focus on questions around how to collaborate when there may be conflicts between partners, whether it’s conflicting schedules, motivations, or values, and what to consider when those conflicts come up. This discussion includes what to consider when partnering with law enforcement, how to sort through conflicting community meeting needs, and the challenges of finding common ground when everything seems polarized.
Featuring Sheri Brady, Paul Schmitz, Tracy Timmons-Gray, and Junious Williams.
