"In a world that feels ever more dangerous, divided, and out of balance, Nurturing Our Humanity outlines the roadmap for how we raise a healthier generation of children and move away from a punitive and
domination-based society to a world that leads with partnership—
where empathy, care, and community are valued above all, and each
can fulfill our full human potential."
—Jennifer Siebel Newsom, First Partner of California, Filmmaker
