“We're all waking up to the potential for harm that technology can unleash on us.”

Kristin Hansen is Co-Founder of AllSides Talks (formerly known as AllSides Connect), a technology platform that brings students from various backgrounds together to engage in constructive dialogue on difficult topics.

AllSides Talks uses Mismatch™ technology, which connects classrooms across the country with different political, socio-economic, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Students have small group discussions using conversation guides.

Hansen talks about AllSides Talks in The Reunited States' Everyday Heroes series:

Everyday Heroes profiles civic pioneers across the USA who are creating novel solutions to polarization. It’s a companion series to The Reunited States, an acclaimed feature documentary executive produced by Van Jones and Meghan McCain. The film follows everyday Americans seeking to bridge our political and racial divides. The Reunited States is available on Amazon, iTunes and everywhere On Demand.
