The Starts With Us Core Principles
We’re a community of problem solvers focused on rebuilding our social fabric through daily behaviors that encourage trust, goodwill, and skills that empower each of us to have productive and meaningful dialogue across differences. Inspired by or have ideas on our principles? We want to hear from you.
We believe in the transformational power of narrative storytelling to bring these principles to life and drive consensus-based solutions through better conversations, stronger communities, and smarter policy.
