StoryCorps' One Small Step is an effort to mend the fraying fabric of our nation, one conversation at a time.

One Small Step: Courageous Political Conversations

KMUW's Engage ICT: Digital Democracy on Tap and Kansas Leadership Center partnered to present One Small Step: Courageous Political Conversations on Tuesday, November 17.

This special collaboration with StoryCorps' One Small Step featured a conversation Dave Isay, the founder of StoryCorps, on the importance of coming together during a divisive time in our history. We also spoke with Wichita's One Small Step participants about how they felt bridging an ideological divide with a stranger.

After the presentation, viewers were encouraged to participate in a small group discussion with KLC facilitators Ed O'Malley and Dioane Gates on what we can each do to come together now that the elections are over.

Here's the recorded presentation that streamed live on KMUW's Facebook page:
