This panel explores tangible programs that have broad support across political ideology and affiliation. Although much of what we read, hear, and see presents polarized portrayals of the world, we know that more often than not there are many lines of similar thought and conviction that unite people and groups towards a common goal. The projects presented in this panel focus on putting children, families, and communities first, and politics and ideology a distant second.
