AMERICA DIVIDED

America's divisions are tearing at the fabric of our democracy

and the relationships of everyday Americans.

Americans more ideologically divided than in the past.

And we are more geographically polarized today than at any point since 1860.

America is nearing a critical tipping point. Fueled by deep cultural divisions,

partisan polarization is tearing at the fabric of our democracy by

eroding trust and compassion between friends, neighbors, and institutions.

We aim to catalyze a generation of young people to lead in depolarizing our society. To learn how, read about our Fellowship Program.
