Our Mission

As I'm sure you are all aware, the political divide in our country is alarming and upsetting. 

The purpose of this project is to create a series of filmed one-on-one conversations between Conservatives and Liberals. These short conversations are designed to foster authentic and generous listening between people who are opposed politically. Participants will be trained and developed in tools that promote active and generous listening. It's a great opportunity to get deeply connected to someone who may disagree with our worldview/opinions/beliefs and find out that we share a lot in common. The ultimate scope and aim of this project is to heal the division taking place in our country.

With that being said, we are looking for leaders, participants, videographers, and ANYONE who would like to participate in The Listening Project. Should this be something that calls to you, please contact our Executive Director at alex@thelisteningproject.net
