Resolutionaries are people committed to finding common-ground solutions in a divided world.
REVOLUTION OR RESOLUTION?
Resolutionaries believe in working together to address common concerns and challenges in our nation and the world, through respectful dialogue and effective problem solving.
These days, that sounds pretty revolutionary. But, we aren’t looking to overthrow institutions. Rather, we are uprising against the polarization and divisiveness that makes progress toward common goals almost impossible. We are leading a rebellion against the extremism that monopolizes our media and diverts our attention from the truth of our basic commonalities.
It seems like our country is sinking under the heavy burden of issues like immigration, gun control, abortion, and income inequality, etc. However, instead of bailing out the ship, we’re busy hitting each other with the buckets.
Fortunately, we can change that. It starts by something as simple as sitting down and listening empathetically – having a curious and respectful conversation – say, with that uncle you argued with at the last family barbecue.
After all, we’re all on this rock hurtling through space together– isn’t it time we learn to get along.
THINGS WE ALL WANT
Healthcare for our family members, good schools for our kids, safe communities and decent jobs. We’ve spent so much time talking about what we hate, we’ve left no space for what we need. When we listen intentionally, we discover that our fundamental goals are the same for all of us. That’s the first step toward achieving them.
We are a group of people committed to healing the partisan divide in the United States by transforming the way Americans engage in political dialogue.
