We have come up with a way help diversify friendships, social media feeds, and conversations.
Arthur Brooks, Jonathan Haidt, and David Brooks have identified toxic levels of political polarization and malice in our country and made a compelling case for:
HETERODOXY
What's the goal?
The goal is to communicate heterodoxy to a reluctant audience.
How do we do it?​​​​​​​
We accomplish it by developing a persuasive movement originating with the release of a
feature documentary film.

Potential approaches:
Angle 1: Crisis in the Academy
Higher education has been a long-time staple in the American Dream, but its fall from heterodoxy may prove disastrous. Today, the importance, value, and trust ascribe to the academy is under question by a large conservative constituency. This makes bipartisan collaboration much harder even when action is urgently needed.
Angle 2: The Political Divide: Addressing Climate Change
We primarily focuses on the polarization in American. We tell stories of people who are climate activists living with anxiety about the future. We also tell stories of people in rural America who are skeptical of research around climate change. What has divided us and can we work together to address something as important as climate change?
Angle 3: Communication Across Difference
We would work in tandem with Essential Partners to tell the story of secret talks that took place in the 90s between pro-life and pro-choice leadership. The conversations illustrate why it’s hard to communicate across difference, why it matters, and the various crucial results. There are also current conversation underway that we would capture.
Angle 4: The Political Divide
We primarily focuses on the polarization in American. We tell stories of people who are climate activists living with anxiety about the future. We also tell stories of people in rural America who are skeptical of research around climate change. What has divided us and can we work together to address something as important as climate change? This doesn’t take sides. It simply appeals to the feeling of a larger, encompassing team that includes all of us by appealing to the humanity of the other.
