• What we'll do
A recent study published in the December issue of Nature: Human Behavior presented a link between prejudice and deviation from a familiar pattern. The authors pointed out that this was only one factor in the formation of prejudicial judgments. At this meeting, we will explore this and other possible roots of prejudices as we ask, what are our prejudices, and where do they come from? Join the Crossing Party Lines discussion and have a voice in our Nation’s Conversation! People of all views are welcomed, appreciated, and heard.

As always, wine, tea, and cookies will be provided. Feel free to add your contribution to the group fare.
