Before you go: After Thanksgiving, we know how talking to your families who are supportive of Israel’s war on Gaza has weighed on many of you—as it does on many of us. We plan to talk about it, but we need your help. In a collaboration with the podcast Unsettled, we’re collecting your stories of how you’re navigating conversations with your families, friends, and communities in this moment: What has struck you most in these interactions? In conversations about politics, what has worked in getting through to your loved ones, and what hasn’t? How are you managing these relationship, or coping with your feelings about them? Does this feel similar to political arguments you’ve had in the past or like an entirely new challenge? To tell us about this, we hope you’ll leave us a voicemail at 347-878-1359. Please include your first name and location—or neither if you wish to remain completely anonymous. We’ll be taking messages on this subject until Tuesday, November 28th, and we will play and talk through a selection of these messages in an upcoming episode of On the Nose.
