Our vision is one of united, inclusive and resilient societies in which all people have a strong sense that what they have in common is stronger than what divides them and where support for the values of liberal democracy, and its institutions, is reinforced.

We think this requires a ‘new majority’ that will include both cosmopolitans and much of the anxious or conflicted middle segments of the population.  Working with partners, our mission is therefore to help assemble this new patriotic majority through a combination of narrative  (helping tell a new story of ‘us’) and connection, by re-connecting people to one another in meaningful ways through a new experience of ‘us’.

Taken together we believe narrative and connection, on a scale that touches millions, amount to the systemic response needed to address the systemic threats we currently face.
