A collaboration between StoryCorps' One Small Step and the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership.
In order to further its mission of promoting civil discourse and preparing students, the school invited One Small Step to Arizona State University at the beginning of the fall 2019 semester. The project, put together by national nonprofit StoryCorps, provided ASU students the opportunity to have a civil discussion with other students with different political views in an effort to break down the barriers created by politics. By providing a platform for civil discourse, students get a chance to have challenging, yet meaningful conversations with their peers -- something they will have to do frequently when they enter their careers and civic life.
One Small Step has given over 450,000 people the opportunity to record interviews about their lives and have them preserved in the Library of Congress. Focused on personal stories, the conversations listed below shine a light on finding common ground amidst political opposition.
Listed below are the individual conversations. For an overview of the initiative, watch this YouTube video.
