The Reunited States of America
A manifesto for a movement to reunify the country, it highlights more than 40 individuals and organizations already finding common ground on some of today’s most difficult and divisive issues. Gerzon, founder and president of the Mediators Foundation, offers a roadmap. Noting, for example, the unrest of voters who lifted Donald Trump to the presidency, he advises that “we progressives … take the time to understand their seething grievances and frustrated hopes and then, if we can find the courage, take them to heart.”
The event is co-presented by the Friends of the Kansas City Public Library.
