ABOUT BETTER ARGUMENTS
Based on core partner Eric Liu’s belief that developing the will and skills to argue productively is essential to America’s civic health, Citizen Film creates short clips that reflect and engage American (including California) communities in facilitated arguments exploring their tensions in historical context. Our partnership with Liu’s Aspen Institute American Citizenship and Identity Program is driven by a shared belief that because trust in our political and civic institutions is low and polarization is high, America needs shared stories that show citizens how to address difficult problems by coming together to argue productively about the major divides in American life.
