WHAT OTHERS SAY
"Given the challenges that we face and the overall frustration with the current state of politics, Convergence may be coming along at just the right juncture where history and opportunity merge for a new level of national problem solving."- Harris Wofford

Center for Policy Innovation, The Heritage Foundation
"...I was pleased to be part of the US-Muslim Engagement Project, which demonstrated the ability of people of very differing backgrounds and perspectives to find important common ground on a crucial national issue. Now, I wholeheartedly support the approach of Convergence and am pleased to be part of it."- Richard Land
