The Reunited States of America Online
At a time when America is ripping apart at the seams, The Reunited States is a powerful and urgent documentary that follows the unsung heroes on the difficult journey of bridging our political and racial divides. Susan Bro, who lost her daughter when a car drove through a group of counter-protestors in Charlottesville, and David and Erin Leaverton, a Republican couple who travel to all fifty states in an RV to find out what divides us, are just a few of the characters profiled in the film. Each of these bridge-builders have realized that while our divides run deeper than they ever could have imagined, so does the love and hope to bring our country back together. Based on the book of the same name (which features The Village Square) the film urges us to consider that everyone has a role to play in reuniting the country.
We’ll be joined by the author of the book, the filmmaker and a former U.S. Representative David Leaverton for an important conversation about what citizens can do to heal the gaping divisions damaging America.
Watch a preview of the film here. (Registrants will receive a link to watch the film anytime during the week ahead of the screening.)
