Working Together on Project

Bridging Divides & Strengthening Democracy

From Science to Practice

The Stanford Polarization and Social Change Lab, Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, Civic Health Project, and the Listen First Project convened “Bridging Divides & Strengthening Democracy: From Science to Practice,” a free, virtual, and practitioner-focused conference on September 29th, 2022. 

 

We presented the approaches that most effectively reduced anti-democratic attitudes, support for political violence, and partisan animosity, explored data-driven approaches and best practices for implementing the Challenge's findings, and announced a new funding opportunity pairing academics and practitioners to implement and evaluate insights from the Challenge within relevant nonprofit organizations.
