It’s time for The Telling Project’s annual fundraiser, which we are calling Eye To Eye. It’s never been more urgent or important: divisive politics, a media that has lost it’s bearings and a nation split. From the beginning, we have worked to build communities across divides, find common ground and appreciate differences. We continue that work, and are expanding to new areas. In addition to working across the military/civilian divide, we are working with refugee and immigrant communities, addressing gender inequality and developing conversations across race lines. Help us with this work. It is critical. Your support is critical. All of our participation in this is critical. It’s time to speak, and it’s time to listen. It’s time to see Eye To Eye.
