Mark Gerzon: The Reunited States of America: How We Can Bridge the Partisan Divide

Mark has been working to bridge the partisan divide in the U.S. for a very long time.  Many years ago (1997 and 1999) he co-designed and facilitated two U.S. House of Representatives Bipartisan Congressional Retreats designed to help House members deal with conflict in order to work together more effectively.  These efforts were followed by numerous other bi-partisan and trans-partisan activities, including most recently co-founding The Bridge Alliance, a diverse coalition of more than 80 respected organizations committed to revitalizing democratic practice in America. In his 2016, book The Reunited States of America: How We Can Bridge the Partisan Divide, Mark not only explains realistic steps that we all can take to bridge gaping partisan differences, but he also tells story after story about how this is already being done.
