We asked: What is the best way to build strong ties across communities?
Simply getting to know someone is a great way to begin building strong ties. Another way would be to go to events that are centered on people that are different than yourself, like a cultural festival. In my experience people are wary of getting to know one another because of a fear of the unknown, misguided stereotypes or bad experiences with someone from a community different from their own. This only makes it harder for different communities to get together and create ties. By being
open to getting to know others, you’re already taking the biggest step.
