Our Conversation Classifieds are here to help you find people to participate in Living Room Conversations! Simply fill out the Conversation Classifieds form and your request for participants will be posted to this page.
**The Conversation Classifieds are submitted by anyone and everyone who would like to be involved in organizing a Living Room Conversation. These conversations are not endorsed or hosted by the Living Room Conversations organization or staff. Living Room Conversations is not responsible for organizing the conversations or responsible for anything that may happen in a conversation. We trust that everyone follows the Conversation Agreements and is appropriate when connecting via email or other contact methods.
If you would like to experience a Living Room Conversation prior to organizing your own group or joining a conversation listed here, you can join a conversation on our events calendar.
Check out Junto to browse and join one-time conversations scheduled by the public; you can also schedule your own!
Junto is our preferred video conversation platform, with features including video calls, built-in topic guides and timers, and event scheduling, all in one. It’s also in beta testing, so any feedback you have about your experience will help make it better. 🙂

We offer Living Room Conversation guides for free! In return, we ask that you share your upcoming or recent Living Room Conversations by clicking the link so that we may support, recognize, and learn from your efforts.
We LOVE to hear feedback about how conversations went. We want to hear it all, the good, the bad, and anything else you have to say. It would be greatly appreciated if you would fill out a feedback form by clicking here. If you use one of our free Zoom lines you will receive a feedback form through email when your conversation is complete!
We have a number of zoom lines available for you to host your own Living Room Conversation. In order to make it easy and accessible for anyone to host an online conversation, we use a platform called Calendly. This will allow you access to one of our paid Zoom accounts. To schedule a time slot, click on the date you would like to hold your conversation and then a time.
You can also use AllSides Connect. Some benefits of AllSides Connect are that it has a built in platform for viewing the conversation guide during the conversation, a timer, and you can use the link at any time rather than just at the scheduled time.
