Welcome to Communities Rising!
Please join us at our Citywide Meeting, held at the Keystone Church, first Thursday each month, 7:00 to 9:00
We hope to see you at our next Citywide Meeting, on Thursday, October 5th, 7 - 9 pm at Keystone Church http://www.keystoneseattle.org/location/ . Our program that night will be based on the idea that, in order to work toward creating a world that works for everyone, we must, among many things, try to understand those with whom we do not agree.
"Empathy as Resistance"
Connecting with Flippable Voters
(Understanding can lead to our more effective resistance.)At this meeting we will discover and explore ways to build bridges to people with whom we think we may not have a lot in common. This is challenging work, best done with the support of others.
Our mission is to bring people together in a caring community to strengthen civic engagement and shape public policies to benefit people and the planet. Here’s how we support our mission:
- Hold monthly Citywide Meetings and promote CR! events and other organizations – See the Events page
- Publicize ways for each of us find ways to plug into the issues and causes that “light our fire” – See the Get Involved page
- Facilitate Neighborhood Groups so neighbors can work on what’s important to them – See the Neighborhoods page
- Provide information vetted by one of our members on a multitude of subjects – Use our searchable Explore Issues page
Together and in community, as actively engaged citizens, may we continue to find ways to create a world and a future that works for all!
