A Bipartisan Thanksgiving

Next Thursday, Americans from different generations, geographies and political views will sit down for Thanksgiving dinner. Most will seek to avoid politics. We at the Bipartisan Policy Center suggest a different approach—and we’re here to help. This Thanksgiving Survival Guide offers some practical ideas about how to bring Green New Dealers and MAGA enthusiasts together around the ideas that unite us all as Americans. If we can’t talk about the issues we care about with the people we care about, it’s hard to expect our elected leaders to do any better—and if things get heated, there’s always pie.

At BPC we try to walk the talk. Take a look at the pre-Thanksgiving Dinner we just held with people from across the political spectrum. It was a great conversation that demonstrated the grace and mutual respect needed to get the country working again.

Give the Thanksgiving Survival Guide a try. Download that here and share it on social media. We’d love to see family before and after pictures. Watch below as policymakers, chefs, and thought leaders talk about the importance of dialogue and democracy this Thanksgiving—and then give it a try. Consider doing the same in your households. Please let us know what you’re thankful for and let us know on Twitter @BPC_Bipartisan.
