Leverett's Hands Across the Hills Reflects on Efforts to Bridge Political Divide with Kentucky Trump Supporters

Hands Across the Hills is a project of the Leverett Bridging Committee that brought 11 people from Letcher Country, Kentucky, to Leverett to have discussions and structured interactions with local residents. Discussions between the two groups revolved around why the group from Kentucky coal country voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election. Monday, December 11, the Leverett group met to recap and discuss what they learned at the Mount Toby Friends Meeting House.
