National Week of Conversation

The National Week of Conversation is about bringing Americans together to talk it out. It is a week-long event where Americans from all walks of life have conversations that prioritize listening first. Each person who listens first to understand “the other” tips the scales toward a stronger future for our nation. In conversations —and the relationships they build—is the hope for mending the frayed fabric of America by bridging the partisan divide.
