‘Make America Dinner Again’: Can dining bring liberals and conservatives together?

After Election Day 2016, Justine Lee and Tria Chang were upset.

Describing themselves as “two Americans who felt disheartened by the often polarizing and vilifying language” surrounding 2016, the pair decided to help Americans listen to each other better using a simple solution: dinner.

Lee and Chang joined Glenn on today’s show to talk about why they were inspired to invite people with wildly different political viewpoints to sit down for a meal together with their Make America Dinner Again project.

Their goal is to remind Americans that whether you identify with liberals, conservatives, libertarians or any other political group, it’s up to each of us to work to build community. You can get involved on their website by finding a dinner near you. MADA matches people based on ideology with the goal of bringing together perspectives from across the political spectrum.

“Let’s get into the places where we have uncomfortable conversations with people, but civil conversations,” Glenn said.
