Conventional wisdom says that we are hopelessly divided. That we have little in common. That our disagreements are signs of a fundamental, irreconcilable rift. But this narrative masks a larger truth. We humans are incredibly skilled at overcoming division.
In partnership with David Byrne, I produced and hosted a video series as part of the We Are Not Divided effort. This initiative reached millions of people—thanks to David’s platform and publicity team—and helped people around the world explore their desire and capacity to bridge divides.
The series was publicized in collaboration with The Guardian, CBC, Rolling Stone, and many other international outlets.
