Tired of an America in which, increasingly, people of differing views square off against one another like warring tribes?

You’re not alone. In an article in The Hill, Peter Coleman, Professor of Psychology and Director of TC’s International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution, argues that the majority of Americans are ripe for change. Indeed, he asserts, this group represents the “hidden tribes” in the political middle. Within their ranks are those who are “working actively to bridge the tensions and promote understanding and compassion.” If you’re a likeminded soul, Coleman advises, “finding and joining with them in common cause should be your next step.”
