In an age increasingly defined by difference and hate, these panelists are working to analyze the deep divisions in society and empower others in efforts to promote peace. Take a break from the headlines to go deep on questions of what divides us, and what might bring us back together.

Di zaman yang semakin diasah oleh perbedaan dan kebencian, para panelis ini akan menganalisa masalah perpecahan yang kian hari makin bergaung dalam lapisan masyarakat dan menggerakkan orang-orang untuk ikut mengupayakan perdamaian. Berhentilah sejenak saat membaca berita utama untuk menjawab pertanyaan tentang hal apa yang selama ini telah memecah-belah kita, dan apa yang mungkin saja membawa kita kembali bersatu.
