HB Listens Conversation Project @ Golden West College

Pull up a chair and engage in a conversation with your neighbors on topics that are important to everyone. No debating or convincing— just respectful sharing, listening and learning.

Please join us on Thursday, November 14, from 6:00 – 8:00 PM for the second conversation in the HBLISTENS Conversation Series: Weaving the Fabric of Community.

About the Topic: Many people sense that something is broken in society. Surveys show about half of young adult Americans are lonely. Opioid addiction, suicide, gun violence, ethnic tension, and depression have been rising. We face rapid change from a globalized economy, cell phones and social media, job-hopping, online dating, immigration, and uncertainty about our future health and wealth. Our social fabric seems to be shredding. Others observe that the social fabric of our communities and nation was never really woven to include everyone in the first place. Yet, there have been many times as a country when people looked past their surface differences and came together as neighbors to support each other.

Let’s explore what might be behind today’s rising sense of isolation, loneliness, and distrust and discover what each of us can do to weave a strong social fabric and build a better community.

Listen for Greater Connection. Speak with Greater Care. Understand with Greater Depth. Recover our Common Humanity. Be in Community.
