At a time when our nation is increasingly polarized and violence is on the rise, there is a need for more understanding and compassion, and less arguing and condemning. The arts can overcome these barriers by touching people’s hearts and souls and can galvanize diverse groups of people to come together for the common good. The Roundtable can begin a process of mobilizing artists to work for these aims.
