Crisis Response Teams - Bridges To Common Ground
 

Crisis Response Teams

Bridges team members & leadership have responded to many different crises and conflicts over a period of decades. We have identified this as a critical part of our mission moving forward. We plan to continue engaging leaders in various difficult situations around the world. Our approach is to focus on common ground and to become friends first. We do not force our agenda, opinions or wishes upon the people we meet with unless they explicitly ask for it from a place of personal friendship.​
