About the Series

Inspired by the power of personal story telling and empathic listening, a small group of people connected to William & Mary in diverse ways began to create opportunities for open conversational sharing about personal experiences related to social issues. 

The planning committee is comprised of staff, faculty members, students, campus ministers, and community members, who have worked together collaboratively since July 2016.
