One Small Step Conversations - StoryCorps

One Small Step Conversations

One Small Step brings strangers with different political views together to record a 50-minute conversation—not to debate politics, but to learn who we are as people. Created by StoryCorps, One Small Step is an effort to remind the country of the humanity in all of us—even those with whom we disagree.

To date, more than 3,000 people in 40 U.S. states have participated in a One Small Step conversation. And we’ve seen people embrace this experience and through the process, find connection with their conversation partner.

One Small Step can bring our communities together—one conversation at a time.
