Will you join us and take the #BridgeTheDivide Challenge?
In his farewell address, President Obama asked us to believe in our collective ability to bring about change. As the next President takes office, we are taking the first 100 days of the new administration as a call to action to unify an America Divided. In creating the series, we learned that while our circumstances may be different — there are core values that unite us a nation. Rather than focusing on our differences, we are challenging ourselves to focus on championing our nation’s founding principles of justice and equality for all.
To do that, we’ve selected 8 key moments from the series that highlight some of the most urgent issues of our time — criminal justice, education, voting rights, the opiate crisis — and paired them with questions designed to challenge our assumptions, and through respectful dialogue, help bridge the divide.
