Are you ready to help bridge divides in America, but don't know where to start? America Talks makes it easy - and the National Week of Conversation keeps the momentum going. Our partners at the Listen First Coalition invite you to join in.
In America today, it can feel difficult to bridge our divides. We might feel tempted to give up or not even try. But this puts America on a shaky path, as we increasingly demean, demonize, and dehumanize each other. Political gridlock and dysfunction, as well as societal and cultural rifts, are only deepening.
America Talks is a powerful two-day event that invites Americans to connect one-on-one, face-to-face on video across our political divides. By doing so, we remind ourselves that the “other” is – just like us – a person with family, friends, hopes, fears, values, beliefs, and intrinsic worth.
America Talks kicks off June 12-14.
The National Week of Conversation continues June 14 -20. Choose courage over contempt and sign up to find - or start! - a conversation near you.
