From Gaza to the White House – can trust ever be rebuilt?

On Thursday, June 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the Newport Beach Civic Center Community Room, a global panel of journalists from the Pulitzer Prize-winning Christian Science Monitor will discuss “The Trust Factor: From America to the Middle East.”

No matter how deep the division – in a presidential election year or in the conflict in Gaza – trust is where solutions begin. Partisan side-taking is real, but it’s not the whole story. Christian Science Monitor journalists will discuss how the trusted news organization filters out manufactured distrust from the extremes to show how common ground in public thought is the basis for rebuilding trust.

This free event will include a robust audience Q&A.
