"Make America Love Again"

A big thank you to the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation for hosting our workshop today. After our signature opening of crazy icebreaker activities, we settled into an intense day of discussion and debate. We learned about our differences and discussed the many divisive issues facing America today. We did so in a respectful and thoughtful environment. Despite our differences, we all agreed that it is time to "make America love again."
