Homework for US

a listening project.

That last exam was rough. Real talk, America: if we don’t want to fail, we have to do some serious make-up work.

Your assignment:

We all see a divide in America, but we can't heal it until we understand it. If you’re traveling outside your geographic bubble for the holidays, ask to listen to the hopes and worries of strangers. How? We suggest food.

Here's the plan.

1.
Take some cookies or apple cider and stand outside the supermarket or on Main Street.
2.
Ask a stranger what they're hopeful for in their community, and offer some food.
3.
Listen. You are not here to argue and this is not a political discussion.
4.
Use #AmericaListens to share a story (with permission, of course) or your experience.
Details and next steps. ➜
