Andrew Hanauer, director of the One America Movement, is the guest on this week’s Jewish Sacred Aging Podcast.
The One America Movement’s mission is to heal growing divisions in American society, to build human relationships that can cut through the isolated “bubbles” that increasingly define our country.
One America’s goal is to transform the way we interact with and see each other and to counter divisiveness in our communities and in the public sphere. The group brings people together across religious, racial, cultural and political divides to participate in community service projects.
These service projects, and the shared meal and conversation that follow, are important vehicles for people of all backgrounds and beliefs to relate to each other as people and see beyond labels that divide us. One America was founded by Jewish, Christian and Muslim faith leaders following the 2016 presidential election and launched with the support of the Jewish service organization Repair the World.
