As part of the celebration of Jewish Cincinnati Bicentennial, join the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati’s Jewish Community Relations Council Leaders in Light and the Mercantile Library for a series of conversations about the state of American democracy and the crisis of extremism and polarization. Global experts on these topics will unpack what’s holding us back, and shed light on shared pathways forward towards a healthier and more just shared society. This hybrid series is part of JCRC’s Leaders in Light institute.

Dr. Peter Coleman, discusses his book The Way Out: How to Overcome Toxic Polarization.
