#TouchstonesWeek2022 October 23-29

Thank you to all who participated in and made possible #TouchstonesWeek2022! We were astounded by the level of support and enthusiasm we witnessed in discussion around the globe. Your commitment to democratizing education is a commitment to democracy itself.

Civil discourse is one of the most important set of skills for citizens in a democracy. At Touchstones, we believe that building mutual understanding through discussion will help us solve our world’s most pressing problems together. To support people around the globe in strengthening these skills while building relationships, we’re bringing back Touchstones Week from October 23 – 29, 2022!
