Before deciding to resolve our differences, let's face them.

Not to persuade each other. Not to reach agreement.

But to explore.

David Hooker

Associate professor of the practice of Conflict Transformation and Peacebuilding

U.S. politics have become more polarized in recent decades, making bipartisan work more difficult. Many Republicans worked hard to thwart the Obama administration's efforts, and many Democrats now are gearing up to thwart the Trump administration's efforts.

Can we reverse this pattern of polarization and work together toward a common good? Should we? Should we seek to work together, or are the differences between us too deep, too important to allow for that?

If you voted for Trump, come and share what you were voting for. If you voted for Clinton, come and share what you were voting for. If you care about our country’s future, come and practice dialogue with others who do too.
