Mark your calendars! The annual National Week Of Conversation will be from April 17th-23rd! This week-long event will feature hundreds of opportunities for people to engage in conversation with one another, both online and in-person, across a range of topic areas. "Experts around the globe endorse guided, face-to-face conversation across differences as one of the most powerful tools available to remove the biases, stereotypes, and misperceptions before they have the opportunity to rip societies apart. By engaging 1:1 and in small groups, we remind ourselves that the “other” is – just like us – a person with family, friends, hopes, fears, values, and worth."

National Week Of Conversation Happening April 17-23, 2023
The 6th annual National Week of Conversation (April 17-23), invites Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs to find their place in community with people willing to talk across their differences to solve important problems. Hundreds of organizations have already stepped up to provide resources and host events that speak to how conversations can move us forward in K-12 and Higher Education, in our local communities, and even in our politics. These resources and events provide Americans from every corner of the United States the opportunity to discover common interests, solve problems, and raise their voices together. Join us to take a courageous step on this hopeful mission to defeat toxic polarization and heal America by transforming division and contempt into connection and understanding. #ListenFirst
