While many in America are now debating accountability vs. unity, there is another concept that belongs in any conversation about how America can recover from a divisive election, devastating pandemic, and long history of racial injustice - empathy. This event is an opportunity to explore empathy in our increasingly digital world. Eric Liu, cochair of the American Academy’s Commission on the Practice of Democratic Citizenship, and Sherry Turkle, author of the forthcoming memoir The Empathy Diaries, will discuss the search for authentic connection and repairing torn social fabric in our challenging times.
