All-America Conversations – National Civic League

National Civic League

Bridging Divides, Building Community.

The National Civic League is working with communities across the U.S. to hold “All-America Conversations” across dividing lines and identify ways that we can work together. All-America Conversations are designed to help cities and other groups understand residents’ aspirations for the community, the divisions facing the community, and most importantly, the small, specific actions that give people confidence that we can work across dividing lines.

The All-America Conversations Toolkit provides communities with everything necessary to hold a productive and meaningful conversation – just add residents.

The toolkit walks you through every step of holding a conversation from:

  • Identifying whom to engage and recruiting participants
  • Picking a location for your conversation
  • Finding and preparing facilitators and note takers
  • Knowing what to ask
  • Making sense of what you heard

The kit also includes tips for facilitators and note takers, a note-taking tool, ground rules, a sign-in sheet, sample recruitment letter, and many other resources.
