WE are a coalition of college students across the nation working to foster the practice of intentional, face-to-face dialogue in our communities, so that we—the future of our nation—can go out into the world and listen, collaborate, and be happier together.

The Problem


Spaces for intentional, in-person dialogue are becoming nonexistent.

. . .

When was the last time you had an incredible conversation uninterrupted by technology?


The Problem


Our Core Values: The TL Five Agreements of Dialogue

I. Listen
II. Suspend Judgment
III. Creative Conflict is Good
IV. Speak Authentically
V. Equity of Voice

Agreement #1: Listen

Participants of a TL Session respect each other by listening to the current speaker as if s/he is the most important person in the world at that moment. In particular, this means all technology is put away unless the presenter explicitly allows it because it is relevant to his/her topic.

The Problem

In the world of ubiquitous connectivity made possible by smartphones, we have lost our ability and desire to listen to one another. Our attention is constantly scattered—we neither hear others nor felt heard:

A quick glance at a notification, a hastily composed email, or a scroll through an Instagram feed—these actions are but a breeze with the powerful computing devices in our hands. Such easy access to unlimited digital worlds can fracture attention, which people could otherwise be dedicating to the people standing next to them.
