What are the best strategies to build community amid extreme ideologies and behaviors that are far outside of the norms for verdant and democratic values? We inhabit a world where extremism co-exists with our aspirations for a better society. In this public forum, awardees from several Confronting Extremism project grants provide TED-style brief presentations about the key learning from their pilots and interventions to enhance community engagement, actions and support for social justice, diversity, and equity.
