The Village Square in Sacramento is a project of Valley Vision, a nonprofit stewardship organization that tackles economic, environmental and social issues. A thriving part of the Sacramento community for over two decades, their vision is a prosperous and sustainable region for all generations. We can't think of a better place to plant a Village Square.

The Village Square in Salt Lake City is being launched by a team of people representing a diverse "socio-political brew," lead by Dr. Jacob Hess of All of Life and in partnership with and with funding support from Living Room Conversations. With Dr. Phil Neisser, Jacob co-authored a book on liberal-conservative dialogue entitled, “You’re Not as Crazy as I Thought (But You’re Still Wrong)” – featured on NPR’s This American Life.

The Village Square Tallahassee Chapter started it all. The seeds of the venture began to germinate in 2006 when then City Commissioner Allan Katz and his good friend Bill Law (then president of Tallahassee Community College) were on opposites sides of a divisive local issue that made it clear the community lacked a shared civic space for conversation between people who didn’t see things the same way. The Village Square hosts about 20 civic forums every year, ranging from their signature Dinner at the Square series to town hall forums to Speed Date Your Local Leader.
