students discussing lessonThe Unconventional Wisdom Project

The founder of the Unconventional Wisdom Project, Molly Flicker, was a high school freshman who realized many of her news and informational sources ignored or dismissed alternative viewpoints rather than exploring and discrediting them. She is active in the high school debate team, and the debate format sparked an epiphany. She found the best way of forming her own educated opinion required actively seeking out reasoned arguments with alternative and even opposing viewpoints. The Unconventional Wisdom Project identifies challenging topics and current events and attempts to curate a few articles with differing perspectives to best facilitate developing independent and informed opinions.
