Washington Briefing Breakfast

Turning Adversaries Into Allies

Speaker: Sally Kohn, CNN Political Commentator and Columnist


With hilarious personal stories alongside poignant findings from science and  research, Sally takes audiences on a journey to understand why we divide against one another — and the harm it does to our culture, our businesses and ourselves.  And then points the way forward, giving audiences concrete steps for how they can combat hate and division in their own minds and in their lives. Sally will also offer her insights into the current political atmosphere and a preview of the 2020 presidential election.
