Belonging and Building Understanding

Staying Connected in Times of Isolation

Do you have a friend, neighbor or relative who might appreciate an invitation to connect? Here are guides to help you have great conversations. Gather with folks by video, social media or even in person if that feels good to all.
We hope to join with you in creating and maintaining relationships that generate understanding and enable collaborative problem-solving for our country and around the world.

Do it yourself! Living Room Conversations guides give you everything you need to have great conversations with your family or friends and their friends. If you have questions about how to do it yourself we have video, written materials and even office hours to answer questions. Co-host with a friend you haven’t seen for awhile and each invite two friends that you are curious to hear from—then have a great conversation. Don’t have your own video service? We can help! We have  Zoom conference lines that we are sharing with Living Room Conversations users. Request one here.

We’ve written some great conversation guides specifically for this time; we also have conversation guides that are relevant now more than ever. Check them out below.
