Living Room Conversations
Watch our livestream series where we talk about some of the most relevant and pressing issues of today—with family members, friends, faith community leaders, subject matter experts, and more!
Take a peek into the vulnerable sharing and thoughtful insights that are at the heart of our conversations.
Humans are wired to connect, and conversation is one of our greatest tools for connection. Join us for a conversation watch party digging into what it looks like to build better communication: active listening, being curious, interacting with strangers, and being authentic.
We have assembled a diverse, inter-generational group including an author, college student, veteran, nonprofit executive, and high school senior.
This strain of conservatism involves prioritizing our local geographic identities while “conserving” our civic institutions (from the workplace to religious organizations) and what might be called “community commons” that anchor community life (parks, community centers, libraries and other common resources). Join us as six individuals with different views and life experiences talk about communitarianism and conservatism and what it means to them.

In this Living Room Conversation LIVE, six Black community leaders gather to share what Juneteenth means to them, offer ways others can honor this day, and consider their vision for continued liberation.
