Constructing The Peace
After The War
December 5, 2016 | Washington, DC
Now more than ever, America is a divided nation.
After a divisive election, some are elated with the outcome, while others are angry. And many are wondering how our nation can possibly heal after a historically bruising campaign.
This is a moment that will require leadership, not just from our president-elect but also from Congress. This is a moment where leaders must pivot quickly from a hard-fought and divisive campaign to the hard work of governing.
On December 5, No Labels hosted 1787: Constructing the Peace After the War, an event seized the post-election moment and jumpstarted a long overdue national conversation focused on bipartisan problem solving. Watch 1787 here.
This event enabled leaders to discuss key issues and set a new tone for the country as a new president prepares to take office.
It is time for the permanent campaign—in which our leaders conclude each election by immediately preparing for the next one—to end. 1787 offered a fleeting opportunity for Americans to embrace a new way. To begin the next president’s term focused not on tearing down the other side but on building America up.
Let’s try to reawaken the same spirit of patriotism and urgency that existed when our Founders gathered in Philadelphia over 200 years ago. Sign your name here and it will be included on our list of supporters at the event in December. You’ll also receive access to our livestream as well as other exclusive opportunities.
