Description

Bridging Our Divide

As a nation, we're being split apart by an inability to communicate and see common ground. There’s a growing sense of division and contempt fueled by partisanship, social media, and geographic separation. We need to work together to improve communication between people with different ideologies and different visions of America, because our core values overlap more than they differ and we are all at risk when divided and outraged. Bridging Our Divide is addressing the division and polarization in our country by hosting conversations and fostering productive dialogue. We host Community Dialogue Events and Common Ground Debates in various cities around the United States.
