The Family Before Party Project was born from the thousands of messages we received after members of Congressman Kinzinger's own extended family published an open letter disowning him over politics.
Aside from the many holiday meal invitations, we saw that many families could relate to the separation and loss caused by the conspiracies, lies, and toxicity that have become too common in our politics. We want to highlight this growing problem and help find solutions. We welcome dialogue with anyone who is facing this situation in their own lives and would like to be part of the project.
We will be publishing excerpts of stories shared with us, attributing only to your First Name and State (ex: Adam, Illinois). We will leave out any other names or identifying details.
Further, we will be conducting interviews for a video project. Please indicate in the survey if you'd be willing to participate on camera (this is not a requirement for participation in the project as a whole).
