Divided We Fall: United Without Tragedy

Divided We Fall: United Without Tragedy

Tue, 06/30/2020 - 8:00pm - 9:00pm

This special brings ordinary citizens together to wrestle with the complex issues that divide our nation.

Divided We Fall, airing Tuesday, June 30 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV, shows ordinary Americans wrestling with what it truly means to be an American, the divides that prevent it, and what we can do to bridge the gaps. We were inspired to prove on camera: despite profound divisions, Americans are hungry to connect and bridge the divides. Americans want to talk with and listen to each other. Americans want the core of our democratic experiment– “We the People” to succeed. We’ve now proved it twice– in Chicago at the start of the new year and last September in Massachusetts. Both times we brought together twelve strangers divided in their approval of Trump that, 48 hours later, left with relationships and even friendships.
