We Are Weavers

We believe relationships can transform our lives and our communities… and ultimately mend our deeply divided nation. We work in our neighborhoods and towns to create connections and lead with love. The Weave Project connects and supports us.

We can heal our isolation, change our culture, and #WeavethePeople

America feels broken. We can heal it.

35% of Americans are chronically lonely and 50% say no one knows them well. Suicide is rising. Violence, hatred and political gridlock seem normal. Weavers from across the country gathered in 2019 for the first time to face the problem together.

Share your Weaving Wisdom as a Weave Community Advisor

Weave is looking for a diverse set of advisors of different ages, backgrounds, experiences, and communities to help guide Weave’s work. Community Advisors will serve a two-year term, receive an honorarium and expenses, and meet with the Weave team four times a year to review Weave’s activities, provide advice, and suggest new programs to support weavers.

If you are an active weaver in your community, believe weaving is the ground-up solution to America’s divisions, want to make sure communities like yours are understood and served by Weave, and seek to grow as a weaver, leader and speaker through training and experience, please apply by August 15th.

Weaving in 400 Seconds

We call people who build social trust in their communities “weavers.” Meet three in these lightning talks, where they tell their stories with 20 slides and just 20 seconds on each on Wednesday, August 17th at 6pm Eastern Time (3pm Pacific Time).

Dina Gregory (New York, NY) connects with folks on the streets of NYC with a one-toothed puppet of Italy’s legendary Christmas gift-giver and is now cultivating a community dedicated to the art of sacred hospitality. John Noltner (Minneapolis, MN) sold his house and is traveling the country in a van with his spouse helping communities see themselves through photos and interviews. Victoria Chance (Greenville, SC) uses a deck of listening cards and a no-interruption conversation to bring neighbors together to listen generously, share stories and discuss community issues.
