The widening political division and polarization of our world have become so personal, and so volatile, that the very idea of civil, open-minded conversation can seem unreachable at times, and solutions scarce — until you meet Amina and Joe. Their unlikely friendship is the clearest example of how best to listen and collaborate across political divides.
