Amid the intense polarization leading up to November’s elections, we proudly present ‘Common Ground October,’ a celebration of America's democracy – honoring its storied past, examining its complex present, and envisioning a hopeful future.

 

This month-long festival features four hour-long episodes showcasing our ‘better angels,’ voices from across the political spectrum who offer reassuring perspectives on how America has weathered such storms before and can again prevail.

 

Each episode, centered on panel discussions, explores different facets of American democracy, emphasizing how each of us can help rebuild and strengthen our democracy’s battered guardrails.
