In an era marked by political polarization, what happens when two strangers, each with distinct political views, come together to share the stories that define their lives?

The South Bend community is invited to a special listening event as part of StoryCorps' impactful One Small Step initiative, a nationwide effort to emphasize the shared humanity that unites us. South Bend is proud to be one of only five communities chosen this year to participate.

Gain insights from experts in mediation, peace-building, and dialogue, who will shed light on the significance of these small steps towards understanding. For further information contact: Karl Smith at 574-323-5325 or

This initiative is made possible through collaboration with 88.1 WVPE, the St. Joseph County Public Library, the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, StoryCorps, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
