People of all viewpoints are welcome to participate, and we are committed to creating an atmosphere that is safe for everyone who attends. It will be a place to share experiences, opinions and solutions to understand how people in our area are actually affected by the policies, issues and events that we hear about on the news and media.
We believe that together, we can reach across what divides us to create Common Ground.
We will meet 3rd Thursday of every month January-May, 2020 (except for March, which meets the 4th Thursday)
