Our Mission: To build empathy across the American political spectrum through conversation.
Our Goal: Change the American political climate by building a movement of listeners on campuses across the country.
What We Do
WeListen convenes small-group discussion to humanize the other side
America is divided.
Red states and blue states, echo chambers on social media, and a divisive presidential election. Americans can't seem to get along.
WeListen gets people talking. Face to face.
We're fostering small-group discussion between unlikely conversants to change the American political climate—campus by campus.
Small-group conversation on campus.
At WeListen, participants from across the political spectrum—Democrats, Republicans, or neither—engage in facilitated discussion (not debate!) on topics like gun control, free speech, abortion, and immigration.
They come together to learn why someone might not agree with them, and leave with an enhanced understanding of how individuals’ backgrounds and value systems affect how they see the world.
