The Revolutionary Love Project, founded by seasoned civil rights activist Valarie Kaur, inspires and equips people to ground their lives and social justice work in the ethic of love. We produce stories that center the voices and wisdom of marginalized communities, generate thought leadership on how the love ethic can challenge systems of injustice, and build tools for people to practice the love ethic in our lives and movements.
At a time when America is ripping apart at the seams, The Reunited States is a powerful and urgent documentary that follows some unsung heroes on the difficult journey of bridging our political and racial divides. Susan Bro, who lost her daughter when a car drove through a group of counter-protestors in Charlottesville, and David and Erin Leaverton, a Republican couple who travel to all fifty states in an RV to find out what divides us, are just a few of the characters profiled in the film. Each of these bridge-builders have realized that while our divides run deeper than they ever could have imagined, so does the love and hope to bring our country back together. The film urges us to consider that everyone has a role to play in reuniting the country.
Healing the Divide is a UUCPA group that formed after the 2016 election to ask: 1) what do we not understand about others with more conservative viewpoints, and 2) what can we learn that will help us communicate even across wide differences in belief.
