Finding What Unites a Divided America

Beneath the tension that divides us
is a thread that unites US.

 
 
 

THERE IS MORE TO THE AMERICAN
CULTURE THAN THE GREAT DIVIDE.

Politics. Race. Gender. Ethnicity. Class. Power. Location. Dreams. Access.
These are the qualities that help to define each individual American, but they do not have to divide our culture.

Through curiosity based conversations, we’re revealing our commonalities that thread us together.

 
 

A divided country is broken. A diverse country is unbreakable.

Republican. Democrat. White. Black. Japanese. Mixed Race. Immigrant. Native. Child. Adult. Musician. CEO. Obama. Trump. Homeless. Rich. Old. Young. Man. Woman. Queer. Bisexual. Christian. Jew. Muslim. Sikh. Sufi. Farmer. City Dweller. Suburbanite.

You. Me. US.

This movement is for everyone.

By helping to fund our patreon, you're saying YES! I believe that our children deserve to never feel the defeat of "that's just the way things are" because they're too busy asking, "what are we doing to make things the way they should be?" You’ll gain access to The Thread's discussion channels, a place for intentional conversation and resources around topics such as race, politics, how to talk about issues with family members, etc.

 
Your touch points with reality are limited to what your experiences have been. If you’re not willing to open up to other experiences, you’re never going to evolve.

That all comes down to conversations. Without those conversations we’re living in a vacuum, but that’s not how to live. That’s how to exist.

MONOLOGUE:

FORGET WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO SAY. SHARE WHAT YOU BELIEVE.

 
We are creating more honest-to-goodness, down-to-earth goodwill in the countries we’ve visited than all the striped-pants diplomats put together.
