The era of the internet has left us all increasingly uncivil in our discourse. Fewer people trust mainstream media sources than in years past, and social media feeds have become sources of vitriol and condemnation. Repairing civil discourse will take changing our behaviors to encourage openmindedness and expose ourselves to new perspectives that challenge our preconceived notions.

The Doe was founded in 2019 as a tool for improving civil discourse. Through curated collections and Off-the-Record features, anonymous authors are able to open up about emotional, controversial, or dangerous experiences in a safe, non-doxxable publication, and readers are able to connect with new perspectives and experiences.
Through its digital publication, The Doe has become the world’s premier publisher of anonymous, verified narratives, gaining over 500,000 followers and over 12,000 subscribers and contributors within its first six months of launch.

Doe Prints: Values and Empathy
In 2021, The Doe launched Doe Prints, a cutting edge values identification feature of the publication. Subscribers are tested and their values analyzed, and then they are prescribed narratives to break their echo chambers and develop their empathy.
By helping users see their values and providing them with an actionable plan to address potential bias, Doe Prints marks a new entry in the self-improvement market, while providing a more meaningful interaction with media for readers. Encouraging and training openmindedness offers a remedy to the self-perpetuating bias bubbles produced by mainstream social media algorithms and unchecked personal preference.
