Are We Talking, ‒ Or Are We Listening?

By Kim Jones, Health Care for All WV Coordinator

“There is a culture war taking place in America that’s not relegated to the most spectacular of instances like the insurrection on January 6th, or the escalation of violence taking place across our country – it resides in the hearts and minds of people stretched across America be we urban, suburban, rural.”  — United Vision Project

For almost ten years now, Americans have grown farther and farther apart in how we think about politics, democracy, and the future of this country. Families have been torn apart. Nearly everyone has found themselves estranged from people that they love. The hurt in our families and relationships has been profound. That pain has spilled over into every aspect of our lives. 

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” We have seen the devastation to our country that this toxic division has caused. Can we as a country survive if we keep going in this direction?

The United Vision Project was created to help us heal and really listen to one another. This extraordinary texting campaign has reached hundreds of thousands of people in the states they started in. We are incredibly excited that West Virginia has been chosen as one of the next states to participate in this vital movement. 

If you are pained and exhausted by the culture war, here is your chance to help. Every month, the United Vision Project hosts trainings for people like you! People who want to get involved in bringing us closer together instead of further and further apart.
