Fort Wayne will be one of 23 cities on the "Listen to America: A HuffPost Road Trip" tour that will seek out personal stories and views to gain a better understanding of what unites America rather than what divides it.
The Huffington Post news and commentary website, www.huffingtonpost.com, announced its team will stop Oct. 5 in Fort Wayne. The tour kicks off Sept. 12 in St. Louis and is scheduled make its final stop Oct. 27 in New Orleans.

Huffington Post, which also is called HuffPost, will send reporters and producers with a mobile studio to spend at least one day in each city on the tour, the news release said. In each city, they will connect with a nonprofit, business or community group and also provide an opportunity for residents to share their views or stories.

The mobile team's reports will highlight undercovered communities and issues, the news release said. They also will tell the story of "heroes" in each location who have made major contributions to their community.

"The ultimate goal is to accurately, humanely and emotionally capture the concerns, hopes and dreams of everyday Americans," the news release said.

HuffPost will share the stories with the public through video, podcasting, newsletter, chatbot, text, in-person activations and the website's popular social media channels, the news release said.

Other Midwest cities on the tour include Akron, Ohio; Detroit; and Milwaukee. For more about the tour, go to huffp.st/listentoamerica.
