The Listeners Project: Queremos Escucharte is a local project that promotes listening as a tool for building community, empowering one another, and celebrating our lives. The project objective is to promote the exchange of stories from the Walla Walla Valley, especially immigrant and first generation community members, by recording and sharing stories from communities who have been historically left out and whose stories are lost or misrepresented in narratives about Walla Walla.
