+MPU Event in DC Area – Guest Speaker Eli Tillemann

Kabob Bazaar

Come join the D.C.-area +More Perfect Union (www.mpu.us) brickyard as we host an incredible guest speaker – Eli Tillemann, a high school senior working to end polarization in his school.

Here is his Op-Ed! https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2023/08/28/thomas-jefferson-high-school-senior-teaches-americans-how-disagree/

+MPU is a non-partisan, non-profit organization building a national movement to build meaningful connections and close divides. Veteran-led, we bring people together for structured conversations around our core values of Service, Mercy, Hope, Humility, Virtue, and Courage. Breaking down the social and digital bubbles we all live in is an important part of strengthening our democracy. If you’re frustrated with the state of our country and want to do something about it, come join us for a conversation and connect with your fellow Americans in a meaningful way.

We’ll start with introductions before turning to Eli to hear about his experiences bridging divides in his high school and how his work can scale to the country. We’ll then engage in a small-group discussion over a nice meal on us.

Limited seating! So be sure to RSVP right now and bring a friend!!

About the Washington Chapter

Washington, D.C. has always been a place of compromise. Born as the beating heart of American democracy, D.C. has long been a symbol of what we can achieve when we come together, and what can go wrong when division takes the place of connectedness in our communities.

The D.C. Brickyard is led by Ben Bain, Jaelin Lespier, and Ryan Smither.
