Our Story

As a society, we’re in a tricky place. We’re suffering from polarization, division, closed-mindedness, loneliness and more. Even worse: most of us feel completely helpless to solve these entrenched, complex issues.

But there is hope. 

At The Deep, we've discovered a simple and elegant solution that breaks down barriers, brings people together, and helps them connect on a deep, human level. 

The solution is: questions.

How it started:

In 2019, a small group of us got together and decided that we wanted to stop complaining about society — and start becoming a part of the solution. Our goals were simple:

(1) help people see that the value (and validity) of differing perspectives

(2) give people who would normally never speak to each other a way to connect on a genuine, profound level (and embrace their common humanity, despite their differences)

The solution soon became obvious: questions. Open-ended, thought-provoking questions — that don't have obvious right or wrong answers (or right or left sides). 

How it's going:

Since we officially launched The Deep in 2020, our movement — and community — has steadily expanded. As of today, we have over 115,000 community members (and growing!) who share our vision for a better future.

We invite you to join us and change the course of society for the better ... one person, one question, and one conversation at a time.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Margaret Mead
