More About Participating in One Small Step

Anyone, anywhere in the United States can participate in One Small Step. Currently, we are paying special attention to our work in four Anchor Communities (Columbus, GA; Fresno/Central Valley, CA; Richmond, VA; and Wichita, KS) and five Radio Station Hubs (Jackson, WY; Rohnert Park, CA; Seattle, WA; Blue Hill, ME; and South Bend Elkhart, IN). If you live in one of these Anchor Communities or near a Radio Station Hub, you are more likely to be matched quickly.

Due to the current demand for conversations, if you identify as politically conservative, you are more likely to be matched quickly.

To participate, apply to be matched. If you’d like more information before applying, visit How to Participate or FAQs about One Small Step.
