Privacy Policy

Because we've put a lot of work into this.

The Wall and Us is a space for and by the lonely. The idea is to create a safe space where the millennials of today can come together and talk about the things that matter to them, move them, make them happy, and make them sad.

It’s a space that celebrates vulnerability and encourages people to be kinder and empathetic to people’s plight.
