American democracy is in crisis, with a coarsening of our national conversation and an erosion of public trust that threatens the guardrails of self-government. Many citizens feel dislocated, disempowered and believe that remote institutions and government don't listen to their needs and interests. One way to bridge divides is to listen to a broader range of opinions, from people not like you.
Pearce Godwin, founder and CEO of Listen First Project, joins How Do We Fix It? Hosts Richard Davies and Jim Meigs to discuss the #ListenFirst movement as well as the thousands who have signed the Listen First Pledge.
These podcasts explore what it means to be an engaged citizen in a democracy and combine professional and academic expertise with boots-on-the-ground work happening in communities across the country.
