Union: A Democrat, a Republican, and a Search for Common Ground

Two friends -- a Democrat and a Republican -- travel across America "on a deeply personal journey through the heart of a divided nation...to find growth, hope and fundamental strength in their own lives" (Bob Woodward) and the country they love, in good times and bad.

Union is a road narrative, a civics lesson, and an unforgettable window into one epic friendship. We ride along with Jordan and Chris for the whole journey, listening in on front-seat arguments and their conversations with Americans from coast to coast. We also peer outside the car to understand America's hot-button topics, including immigration, mass incarceration, and the military-civilian divide.

The John Brademas Center and NYU DC Dialogues welcomed co-authors Jordan Blashek and Christopher Haugh in conversation with Philippa P.B. Hughes for a dialogue about their experience and what they have learned.
