By shaming all white people, or men, and ignoring their spiritual needs, as well as their desire for recognition and respect, liberal and progressive forces have long been out of touch with the needs of a large section of American society. In addition, those who seek to live in a loving and just world need a positive vision of what we stand for, and not just against. Join Rabbi Michael Lerner, PhD, editor-in-chief of Tikkun magazine, and Cat J. Zavis, executive director of the Network of Spiritual Progressives, as theydiscuss how to address these complex issues.

During this inspiring session, you'll discover:

  • How to understand the spiritual & psychological pain that cause some people to vote against their own real needs
  • Ways to bring empathy, compassion and a spirit of generosity into liberal & progressive politics
  • The importance of helping spiritual people move beyond a focus on self and take up the challenge of healing our society
