Building online communities with real voices in real time.

In this moment, connecting online is more important than ever. Yet too often today, Americans seem to be talking past each other. On issues like our kids, our jobs, our bills, our health – these are the joys and challenges of everyday life, and we believe a lot more unites us than divides us.

Real Voices Media creates communities where Americans can come together around the things that unite them, and where they can share their authentic stories. 

We give people the skills to stay in touch with their personal networks on social media, and to share stories with their neighbors, friends and family. Our communities are based around things like where you live, what you do or what your interests are – and they’re all about making sure you get the content you want from people you can trust.

Our video producers share community stories, and we provide day-long trainings to help partners and individuals develop professional storytelling skills to enhance community engagement on the issues of the day.
