Empowerment Through Dialogues,
Interfaith Outreach and Training
Neighbors gather to sit with each other and break through barriers of silence that often exist among people of different cultures. Our city and state representatives, along with local schools, churches, synagogues, mosques, Community Boards, and nonprofits in each neighborhood get involved in hosting this neighbor-to-neighbor dialogue program.
Here are some pictures of the 2012 YOUTH

ACROSS DIFFERENCES SAMPLE AGENDA
||Small group dialogue (small
groups of 3-4)
Last time we didn't get to the main issue
– places where your particular culture and
values may differ from the larger society.
We are going to lead into tonight's
question with an exercise where we ask you
to speak from your “I”, from your
personal feelings and experience.
Exercise – An experience from the “I”: I
have experienced a cultural value or
custom different from my own, and it made
me laugh, cry, disturbed me, informed me,
caused me to see something in a different
way. Speaking only from your
personal experience, please share your
experience with your group.
Have you experienced a conflict (within
yourself or with someone else, a
co-worker, on the job, at school etc.)
because your values differed from the
greater secular, civil culture?
- pledge allegiance in school
- swearing an oath on bible in
- young age marriage (Court has to
- legalized prostitution
magazines with scantily clad
people on covers (some newsstands
remove these, honoring concerns
about modestly; others do not,
honoring "freedom of speech" ideals).
