We live in a polarized and fragmented world. Our democratic traditions are threatened by tribalism and intergroup conflict. Politics and the media foster division and moral outrage.  We can and must do better. Creating Common Ground (CCG) helps people learn to bridge divides on interpersonal, social, and political problems.
