At the Thursday Night Market, people were asked to separate themselves into labels they identified with like veterans, vegans, farmers, students and many more.

They were then asked to place a ball in a basket from their group for every question they answered with yes.

All done in efforts to provide an, “experiential common ground, rather than just a political common ground.”

Kate McCarthy, event speaker, said, “Hoping to show people that they have more in common with others in the community than they think.”
