"Healing a Divided Country Starts with Trust" with Weave: The Social Fabric Project at the Aspen Institute

Can you trust most people? If you are like two-thirds of Americans, you doubt it. Researchers have asked this question for decades – and no surprise, Americans’ social trust is at a 50-year low point. It matters. Distrust shrinks our lives, makes us feel alone and has left the country divided and in gridlock. Yet there’s a quiet revolution going on. People in communities everywhere are showing up for neighbors despite their differences and weaving a strong, inclusive social fabric.

Any of us can become these weavers.

Join us for an open discussion with a team from Weave: The Social Fabric Project on how to build trust with neighbors and restore hope, starting where we live.

Free and open to the public.
