Americans seem more divided about political issues than ever before. The way politics is covered in the media and shared through social networks creates surface-level divisions. This prevents civil discussions from taking place, even among family and friends. We need to empathize with each other in order to create positive change in the face of dire global issues.
Roots of Our Beliefs is an interactive website that uses the power of storytelling to help people heal political divides. When you enter our website, you can browse illustrated stories about people's journeys through different stages of their beliefs. This will help you reflect on your own parallel experiences so you can understand where our beliefs come from and why we stick with them. Only then can we begin to undo our biases and begin reaching across the divide.
