Recipe for unity

Social media often paints the picture of a hyper-divided country, but the American reality is very different. While today’s political discourse can be a source of lingering division, most Americans overwhelmingly believe that diversity makes us stronger and more willing to innovate, solve problems, and navigate a complex world.

In 2017, UnidosUS launched the Rise Above initiative, a campaign to encourage Americans to “rise above” racial, political, and policy differences and unite around a positive vision of the future. One of the campaign activities was Supper United—a multicultural potluck dinner based on a model created and pioneered by Nashville-based Conexión Américas and Dirty Pages. These events brought together people from different backgrounds to eat together at the same table and find shared values and strength in diversity.
