The United States’ political and social structure is in tatters due to racial inequality, political upheaval, greed, ego and corruption.

Families ripped apart, children in cages, communities in crisis and a stymied and ineffective government, all against the background of a world-wide pandemic and a planet on the verge of a climate catastrophe.

Instead of working together to solve these problems, the level of discourse is toxic, understanding and compromise have been replaced with tribalism, hatred and fear, to the pain and anguish of us all.

If we are to survive and thrive, things need to change.
