Chapter 9: Widening the Circle

Loeb discusses in this chapter the importance of seeking out other people whose points of view may be different from yours. He also talks about the importance of involving many different groups to work on social action issues. What does he mean when he states, "The more we listen to those who experiences and perspectives are unfamiliar, the more we realize what draws us together"? Give an example from the chapter of how people who generally might seem to have nothing in common worked together to make a positive change. Think about your own life, and ask yourself how often you put yourself in situations where you are exposed to people who may have very different ideas or lead very different lives than your own.
