This USA Today piece by CGC Co-Founders Bruce Bond and Erik Olsen calls for citizens and politicians to stop using the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to push partisan politics and cites cooperation between Israelis and Palestinians as an example we can follow.

Our scale is a simplified representation of a complex array of beliefs and ideas — there are plenty of shades of grey in between.
