What we're about
As anyone who has been on social media in the past few months knows, everyone has an opinion about the state of America at the moment. There's a lot of shouting out there! What we often seem to be lacking is understanding of other people's views. While the online worlds we may travel in are broad, the real-word that we see and hear everyday is much smaller. Most of us do not get an opportunity to listen to people whose experience in life is profoundly different from our own. This group is an experiment in providing an opportunity for people from different backgrounds (in terms of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual preference and socio-economic status) to listen to one another in a positive atmosphere. Questions are always okay. We need to know what we don't understand in order to understand. Perfection in thought and speech is not expected, but respect is.
