Uniting America

A series of six Assemblies held between 1999 and 2002 that focused on finding "common ground" on some of the more  divisive issues in American life, from racial equality to religion to family structure.

The series included The Economy: Sustaining Growth with Opportunity (1999), Matters of Faith: Religion in American Public Life (2000), Strengthening American Families: Reweaving the Social Tapestry (2000), Racial Equality: Public Policies for the Twenty-first Century (2001), and Collaborating to Make Democracy Work (2001).  In 2002, the project published Building a More United America, which sought to move the dialogue on these issues into a wide range of communities around the country.
