A major problem & a root cause...

Loneliness is a public health crisis that is impacting 43% of American adults. It is more dangerous than obesity or smoking 15 cigarettes per day. Chronic loneliness alters the immune system causing an array of mental and physical illnesses.

It can even lead to violent behavior.


The Togetherness Bench Partnership is a grassroots campaign to reduce loneliness by rebuilding social infrastructure and promoting friendship.
