To See Each Other

To See Each Other

Where we explore how people are reshaping small town America and how writing it off as Trump country hurts us all. Hosted by George Goehl, To See Each Other complicates the narrative about rural Americans in our most misunderstood, and often abandoned, communities. George travels to Michigan, Iowa, New Jersey, North Carolina and Indiana to reveal how small town folks are working together in fights for everything from clean water and racial justice to immigration rights and climate change. Our belief: That when we see each other, we’ll understand that we can never give up on each other.

The fight for clean water is a form of inequality. The people who are poisoning the well and those who have to drink from it. The people who have access to water and those who don't. The people who can afford to be healthy and those who can't. George takes us to Iowa, to the frontlines of an intergenerational, intersectional fight for the right to clean water and a return to a stewardship of the earth, while local farmers p...

While we do all we can to prevent that decimation from happening, we also have to learn from the rebuilding and recovery that we do do. In New Jersey, we get the chance to learn from Hurricane Sandy survivors who refuse to give up and let their community be washed away, against a...
