Amid heighten political rhetoric, Reps. Dean Phillips (D-MN) and Dusty Johnson (R-S.D), team up to listen and problem solve with their constituents in both their districts.
The town hall later this month is a prototype organizers hope they can replicate elsewhere to demonstrate Congress can remain a place for ideas rather than insults. Plans are already in the works for Phillips to visit Johnson’s district in the fall and include a similar town hall.
“I believe representation begins with listening; we're going to listen to people. We need more spaces and places for people to share perspective,” Phillips chimed in. “And if we all did the same thing. The country is going to be in a better place.”
