Bringing light not heat to public discourse.

As a non-partisan, citizen-led 501(c)3, we bring together high-profile panelists of diverse political backgrounds – from Donna Brazile and Michael Steele to John Kerry and Condoleeza Rice – to find common ground on divisive issues like race, taxes and healthcare. Our forums invite citizens and leaders to shift their goal from winning arguments to making progress on issues, and inspire them to work toward a world where health, wealth and happiness can be achieved by all.
