Friends of Friends of Friends is an oral history investigating ideas about community. Interviews include the CEO of Lambda Legal, an international children’s rights advocate, an award-winning chef and restaurateur, one of the women who revealed her alleged assault by Trump during the 2016 election, an interfaith minister at a rural hospital, the Health Director on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation, and more. These conversations explore how we define and build community. 

There is a loneliness crisis in America. US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy warns that half of us experience measurable loneliness, which has been linked to depression and significantly increases the risk of heart disease, stroke and dementia. The Harvard Study of Adult Development demonstrates that personal relationships are keys to emotional and physical health. By connecting to each other, we in turn provide for ourselves. The collection demonstrates that belonging to community is an imperative of our time.
