The Church and a Polarized America


Attendance will be limited for this function, so your prompt RSVP is very much appreciated.

Access to U.S. Capitol Buildings remains limited. If you do not work in the Capitol but wish to attend, you will need to make arrangements to be escorted into the building by a Hill staffer.

The toxic divisions, cancel culture and partisan hatred that continue to grip America are a challenge not just for our country but for our faith. Many churches are divided, while many Christians are selecting out of churches they've been a part of for a long time to find a church that more fully lines up with their political views. More than a third of pastors have considered quitting their ministries. But faith is also the answer to our polarization.

Andrew Hanauer is the President and CEO of the One America Movement, an organization founded by faith and community leaders to fight toxic polarization in the aftermath of the 2016 election. Under Andrew’s leadership, One America has launched projects that bring Americans together across divides to address race relations, opioids, poverty, and religious differences across the country. In addition to running projects that unite Americans across divides, the One America Movement trains religious leaders on the dynamics of polarization and division.

Under Hanauer’s leadership, the One America Movement has built a board and leadership team that spans the political, racial, and religious spectrum. These include senior leaders from national Muslim, Jewish, and Evangelical Christian institutions, such as the Southern Baptist Convention, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Wheaton College, Repair the World, American Jewish World Service, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Cato Institute, Black Lives Matter, the George W. Bush Administration, Silicon Valley, and more.

Mr. Hanauer is a frequent public speaker at houses of worship of all kinds and has spoken at the United Nations, the National Press Club, and Congressional briefings. His work has been published or featured by USA Today, The Washington Post, National Public Radio, Salon, The Times of Israel, Voice of America, the Christian Citizen, and media outlets across the US and abroad.
