As the nation becomes increasingly polarized and people’s lives continue to be politicized, we seek to challenge this practice of dehumanization. Through The Silenced American, people can share their stories of triumph, despair, hope and what it means to be an American. In return, we hope our listeners will embrace these authentically human narratives and reach the same conclusion we did — that behind the broad array of social issues in the United States today, we find the faces of real people, with experiences and challenges unlike our own yet, refreshingly normal.
