Red state or blue state, we want to know about the issues that divide and unite this nation. Reporter Jason Margolis and producer Andrea Crossan will be meeting with people across the country to see how communities are changing in our hyper-globalized world. We’ll be talking trade, immigration, military preparedness - you name it, we're on it!

We’ll be working with local public radio stations to hear what’s going in towns and cities across the US. We’ll be asking listeners and readers to reach out and tell us about what’s happening where they live.
Do you have a story to tell?
