Values Before Issues
We are not trying to change your mind, shift your stance on an issue, or make you more liberal or conservative. Practicing the 3Cs does not mean blunting your strongly held convictions or beliefs.
The Starts With Us movement is rooted in the idea that not only can we co-exist with different beliefs, but that diversity of thought is a strength and that we can cooperate across our differences to solve our most pressing personal and social challenges through constructive dialogue and the practice of curiosity, compassion, and courage.
Our intention is simply to provide the tools to have constructive dialogue across lines of difference on the topics and issues that shape who we are, regardless of political preferences or background.
