  • In 1782, six years prior to the ratification of the Constitution, our nation’s motto -- E Pluribus Unum (Latin for, “Out of many, one”) -- was adopted. In one of the most trying times of our nation’s history, the concept of E pluribus unum overshadowed political animosity and became the base upon which our new nation needed to be founded. In order to prosper, America needed to pull people with unique and diverse perspectives and backgrounds together. Nicole has interned for various political organizations and spent this past summer as a Legislative Intern at the US House of Representatives. Nicole became interested in this topic during her time serving as a delegate to the United States Senate Youth Program. She spoke with some of the most influential people in our Federal Government: a Supreme Court Justice, over 70 Senators, the Librarian of Congress, and the Director of National Intelligence. During her talk, Nicole Fintel discusses how we have begun to lose touch with this pillar of American democracy through a dangerous combination of hyper-partisanship, confirmation bias, and disdain for discussion.
