We rise for an America where civic friendship is no longer destroyed by political rancor. Where we can trust one another again. Where our differences not only divide us, but also strengthen and complete us.
We meet on hallowed ground. Here in July of 1863 Americans fought and killed each other for three days in the bloodiest battle of our Civil War. And here in November of 1863, standing on the burial ground, President Lincoln called for a new birth of freedom. We’ll meet on this consecrated ground in our own time of conflict and testing.
We go to Gettysburg to build new relationships across our divides.
We go to Gettysburg to improve our civic skills and capacities.
We go to Gettysburg to give birth to a national, citizen-led movement bringing together conservatives and progressives on equal terms to clarify differences, find common ground where it exists, and work together to save our country.
This July, on the grounds of the great battlefield of our Civil War, we gather to prevent another one.
