Guiding Principle #5 Build Relationships
Relationship and community are the foundation of change. Call each other up - not out. Healthy competition has its place but cooperation is more often what we need. Take responsibility for your actions. Talk to each other, not about each other. Heal divides.
Guests: Mary Custard - Amherst Regional High School School Dean of Students, 2017 Recipient of the Louise Gaskins Lifetime Civil Rights Award, Organizer and Pillar of the Community.

It feels harder than ever to build relationships in a political environment that fosters division and competition.
