How can Americans find a shared identity together? What does it mean to be an American? What is the common thing that binds Americans together, that can be a source of pride and agreement?

View highlights of this summer’s conversations on what the U.S. government is doing for individuals during COVID-19, Donald Trump, Black Lives Matter, and the lessons that could be learned from the pandemic. Hear from “real” Americans, unfiltered by media and politicians.

If you want to talk to someone with different views and experiences, we can help facilitate discussion. Learn more at curiosityconnects.us and email hello(at)weshouldtalk.today.
