In today’s volatile political and social climate, sharing stories and cultural differences with people of varying perspectives is more important than ever. Unidos US is a civil rights organization that works to increase opportunities for the Latino community. Along with some of their affiliates, Unidos US has launched a program called Recipe for Unity that brings together groups of strangers in the hopes that they will find common connections over food.
