Listening to neighbors - the start and heart of centering community

  • Learn what it really means to listen with intentionality and seek understanding without judgment – listening is an action.
  • Shift dialogue away from services and toward the community while acknowledging the root cause of challenges at the start of every conversation.
  • Show up – when it’s uncomfortable, when you are the only person who looks like you in the room, when you don’t want something – showing up builds trust.

Hosts: Debra Nevels (Medical College of Wisconsin) & Dalvery Blackwell (African American Breastfeeding Network)
