America Talks + National Week of Conversation

April 23, 2022

In April 2022, thousands of Americans matched with those who have different backgrounds and beliefs from all corners of the country will converse face-to-face on video. Each conversation will provide a repairing stitch to America’s frayed social fabric, as participants shift perspective from “us versus them” to “you and me.”

Millions more Americans will be inspired by these conversations, which will be amplified via news media, social media, an influencer campaign, and a live streaming event. America Talks will again serve as the headline event kicking off the annual National Week of Conversation (NWOC), which provides additional opportunities for Americans to connect across differences, turn down the heat and find a way forward together.

There are two things you can do now to inspire your audiences to get involved:

  • Promotion: You can help spread the word. Materials and resources – which include information on America Talks, media assets, and guidance – are available. These can be used to spread the word through email, social media, websites, and earned media to encourage participation in the campaign.
  • Hosting: You can welcome people to participate through either live or virtual events. Resources and guidance for those interested in hosting are also available.
