One Small Step

Take One Small Step with UNCW Student Media & WHQR

What are your fears or concerns about the future of our country?

Do you believe we have more in common than what divides us?

Have a conversation, and see for yourself. 

While Americans face challenges unlike any other time in our history, UNCW Student Media, WHQR Public Media, and StoryCorps invite you to take part in One Small Step, a nationwide initiative to help bridge political divides and strengthen communities, one conversation at a time.

We invite you to meet someone new--a fellow student, faculty or staff with different views from you, whom you might never talk to otherwise--for a simple, personal, 50-minute conversation.

Tested and safe, One Small Step conversations are:

  • Hosted by a trained facilitator
  • Seamless, powerful, and respectful
  • Archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, if you choose
  • Never shared without your permission

One Small Step conversations are not to debate or convince. They’re simply a chance to break the ice: to talk about who we are as people, what we care about, and our dreams for the future.

UNCW Student Media is hosting facilitated conversations on campus or online for UNCW Seahawks through early December 2022.
