MEET THE
FIELD BUILDERS

New Pluralists is working in deep partnership with a community of Field Builders who are helping to shape our shared strategy, pursue new collaborations that advance field-level questions, and learn alongside us.

The Field Builders are making distinctive contributions to new pluralism across a range of domains in this growing field — from depolarization, social healing, bridge building, and racial reconciliation to immigrant inclusion, collaborative problem-solving, civic skill-building, and interfaith engagement.
