WHAT DOES A POST-ELECTION AMERICA LOOK LIKE?
LIVING IN DIVIDED STATES

Curated by Rodney Veal and Jennifer Wenker

In these most divisive times of recent memory, where hate-filled rhetoric divides and fractures community and our sense of belonging, where we have ‘unfriended’ every dissenting voice in our Facebook feed and curate in only the news we want to receive, what has become of us? We are a nation divided and deeply entrenched. What does a post-election America look like? Where do we even begin? It has to start with listening.
