Respect. Relate. Connect.

Join our community of Americans dedicated to connecting across divides.

Join LRC for the National Week of Conversation!

National Week of Conversation is a week-long event where Americans from all walks of life have conversations that prioritize listening first to understand those we tend to think of as “the other.” In conversations—and the relationships they build—is hope for mending the frayed fabric of America by bridging divides.

Join us on social media by using the hashtag #NWOC!

What is a Living Room Conversation?

It's a simple concept that's surprisingly powerful.

Two conversation hosts from different viewpoints each invite one or two others to join together for structured conversation on a specific topic. (We have a lot of structured topic guides to choose from, or you can create your own).

Living Room Conversations can happen anywhere: our homes, coffee shops, conference spaces, churches, and even online via video chat.
