How can we rebuild trust and create change within our lives?
It can be difficult to imagine how to begin to create a better world when we don't trust one another and when we don't trust our government to do what is best for us. It can be difficult to mobilize and find strength in our community when we don't trust our neighbors and when we don't trust ourselves to be able to make the changes necessary to bring integrity and accountability back into our democratic process. There's a great deal of jadedness and apathy stemming from this  simple, yet difficult, problem: a lack of trust.


While we recognize the limitations of any singular blog post’s ability to answer big questions like the ones we’re asking, our intention is to not to tell you everything there is to know about this issue, but rather to open up a space for conversation, reflection, curiosity, and a consideration of all the other questions this one question sets in motion.

“If humans could only know each other, they would neither idolize or hate.”
