We need our country to have an open conversation that starts with listening first. The Listen First Project started as a big and bold idea focused on returning civil discourse to our society. We believe when people genuinely listen in open and honest conversation - especially with someone of different views - our relationships, communities and culture are transformed. We don't need to agree but can gain a new respect and appreciation for other perspectives.

Restoring civil discourse won't be easy.

But it starts with us and it starts with you. Will you join us by signing the #ListenFirst pledge below?

"I will fully listen to and consider another's views before sharing my own. I will prioritize respect and understanding in conversation. And I will encourage others to do the same."
