Toward A More Perfect Union in an Age of Diversity offers a practical road map for organizing study circles -- small-group, democratic, peer-led discussions where community members can engage in genuine, productive dialogue.
Toward A More Perfect Union in an Age of Diversity can also be used with two related documentary films:
Both programs were produced by Arcadia Pictures's A More Perfect Union project and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of its "National Conversation on American Pluralism and Identity." The discussion-starter video, created to go with the sessions in this guide, is available from SCRC.
Our goal in providing this guide is to offer workable suggestions -- a hands-on starting place, not the final word. Since each community has unique issues, challenges, and assets, we welcome and encourage you to adapt this guide to meet your specific needs.
Please stay in touch with us as you implement the ideas in this guide! The Study Circles Resource Center can assist as you organize your program and put you in touch with others who are doing similar work. What we learn from you, we will share with a growing network of communities that are using public dialogue to strengthen community life.
