No Labels: Building Trust and Finding Common Ground | The Trust Edge
The United States government persistently ends up in a grid lock on very important issues, and certain members of Congress have had enough. A new voice is rising up out of Washington. No Labels is a non-profit working alongside Democrats and Republicans to bring harmony back to the halls of Congress. Eighty-six congressmen and congresswomen have joined together to ask the right questions. They are learning about those across the aisle from them and are finding that they have something in common. Although they say their one goal is to forge solutions to America’s problems, they are coming to the conclusion that nothing will move forward unless trust is established.
In politics more often than not, politicians don’t get past the surface label of Democrat or Republican. Because of this they miss out on the depth of understanding that could allow them to see opinions, needs and challenges of the American people. No Labels has formed a group that is helping congress discover that opposing parties have more commonalities than they otherwise thought. The status quo is being challenged and parties are becoming aware of the lack of trust within the U.S. government.
