Video: Kristin Hansen of AllSides named an everyday hero

"We're all waking up to the potential for harm that technology can unleash on us."

Kristin Hansen is co-founder of AllSides Talks (formerly known as AllSides Connect), a technology platform that brings students from various backgrounds together to engage in constructive dialogue on difficult topics. AllSides Talks uses Mismatch, a tech platform that connects classrooms across the country with different political, socio-economic, ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

Hansen has been recognized by "Everyday Heroes," a collection of profiles of civic pioneers who are creating novel solutions to polarization in the United States. It's a companion series to "The Reunited States," an acclaimed feature documentary that follows everyday Americans seeking to bridge our political and racial divides.
