I became a monthly donor to Living Room Conversations because efforts like this –– conversations that impact people’s lives in very positive, personal ways –– are often overlooked in favor of splashy, public work. It’s the best way for me to help Living Room Conversations grow and address the needs of people in their communities across the country.
