Convening changemakers

We're building networks. We're strenghening grassroots movements by making powerful connections between a broad spectrum of individuals, groups and organizations all working toward common goals, encouraging cross-issue conversations and supporting participants as they develop solutions to big problems. 

We follow the lead of communities. We look to community organizers to develop their own solutions to the complex issues affecting where they live as well as the health and enjoyment of the people who live there. And we listen to and help them identify and access the specific tools, resources and connections they need to make an impact.
