Reyes-Chow, Bruce

Bruce Reyes-Chow is a kindness enthusiast. A Presbyterian pastor, leadership coach, spouse of 30 years, and parent to three children, he has spent the past 25 years working with individuals and organizations helping them to work through conflict and change having to do with technology, race, relationships, religion, leadership, and change. He has seen most breakthroughs when kindness—the ability to see the humanity of the other and then behave in a way that honors that belief—is embraced, embodied, and expressed by all involved.

Author of and contributor to books such as, But I Don’t See You as Asian: Curating Conversations About Race, Rule #2: Don’t Be an Asshat: An Official Handbook for Raising Parents and Children, and 40 Days, 40 Prayers, 40 Words: Lenten Reflections for Everyday Life, he now takes on what seems a most daunting task in today’s world of so much physical violence, dehumanizing rhetoric, and divisive rage-tweeting—the defense of kindness.
