Today it’s vital that we help create a new public consensus about who America wants to be as a country. That’s why liberals and progressives need to learn how to frame their messages in ways more Americans can understand. To this end, The Metaphor Project (MP) has been building the capacity of cutting edge American progressive and liberal activists to 'speak American' since 1997.
As a result of our work, many important “early adopter” activist leaders have learned how to “speak American,” on a wide range of issues (see Some Groups Served and Metaphor Project News). We believe that many more are now ready to move into “speaking American.” To serve this new wider audience, we are once again in the process of redoing this web site and preparing to publish our book, Speaking American About Our Future .
