The Listening Project’s mission is to create environments where people learn to listen better together. It is an FBS – For the Betterment of Society – better known as a 501c3 or non-profit, created in 2018. Their mission includes working with children and teachers in school settings, a Social Justice Book Club, and Pie Talks. Pie Talks include pie (we love pie!) and conversation where all voices are invited and listening abounds. They have also facilitated retreats for community groups.
Guest speaker Elizabeth Vander Kamp and Phil Vander Kamp are the creators of The Listening Project and serve as Executive Director and President, respectively. Lori Bateman, Mark Batemen, and Twiaina Tolliver serve on the Board of Directors.
