Listening Sessions Campaign

Join us! Host or Attend a Listening Session in your city:

Listening Sessions are events where participants can sit in small groups to describe the issues that concern them the most.
  • Participants are challenged to be as specific as possible about those issues, and they begin to wrestle with the question of whether or not they are willing to invest their time or energy into addressing those issues.
  • Listening sessions provide information about what is going on within our communities, and allow for us to understand what our members consider priorities.
  • Listening Sessions could lead to public actions or activities like town halls, meetings with elected officials, and mobilizing to vote.

Signup to host a listening session in your community center, and our team will get you the resources you need to get started!
