A Conversation of Hope

The one thing that truly unites us is hope. The first conversation in this series was led by Lesley Scearce, President and CEO of United Way of Greater Chattanooga, and Samar Ali, Research Professor of Political Science and Law at Vanderbilt University, Co-Chair of Vanderbilt Project on Unity & American Democracy, and Founding President and CEO of Millions of Conversations. 

A Conversation on Resilience

Global speaker, advocate, and educator Reverend Nontombi Naomi Tutu joined us for a conversation on resilience for our second event in the Learn United Conversation Series. As a lifelong activist for human rights, Rev. Tutu spoke about our shared humanity and her experience growing up in apartheid South Africa. Community members ended the evening by writing a note to thier younger selves about overcoming challenges.
