This is a PSA for a non-profit called StoryCorps. Their mission is to preserve and share humanity's stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world.
"We do this to remind one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone's story matters. At the same time, we are creating an invaluable archive for future generations."
Their mission is more relevant than ever in the growing rift in this modern age. This PSA was created to promote their ideology through expressing the art of listening.
