We are regularly exposed to the message that in a democracy, such as the United States, our voices matter. We are encouraged to vote—to participate in the electoral process—to be civically engaged. But what does that mean in a climate where so many of us express apathy and distrust in the system? In an increasingly polarized democracy, how do we practice true exchange and listening?
