Weave: The Social Fabric Project

a cultural movement renewing America’s social fabric

“The Weaver movement is repairing our country’s social fabric, which is badly frayed by distrust, division and exclusion. People are quietly working across America to end loneliness and isolation and weave inclusive communities. Join us in shifting our culture from hyper-individualism that is all about personal success, to relationalism that puts relationships at the center of our lives.”

David Brooks


What is Weaving?

Weaving is a way of life and a state of mind, not a set of actions. It’s about the spirit of caring you bring to each interaction with someone else. It’s a willingness to be open and loving, whether you get anything in return. As humans, we long for honest, deep connection. Weavers make the effort to build those connections and make others feel valued.

  • A weaver views their community as home and tries to make it loving and welcoming
  • A weaver treats neighbors as family regardless of outward differences
  • A weaver finds meaning and joy in connection and caring for others
