Description

For democracy to thrive, citizens who hold different views must talk to one another—a major challenge in today’s polarized political environment. This new series sheds light on why Americans see key issues facing the nation so differently, and explores how, despite our differences, we can find common ground through conversation. We begin with race and class, as Joy Connolly, provost and senior vice president at the GC, moderates a dialogue between Bob Herbert, noted journalist and former New York Times columnist, and Tamara Draut, vice president of policy and research at Demos.
