Citywide Meeting at Keystone Church, first Thursday of each month, 7-9



Welcome to Communities Rising!

Please join us at our next CR! Event, held at the Keystone Church, first Thursday each month, 7:00 to 9:00 


We hope to see you at our next CR! EVENT, on Thursday, February 1st,     7 - 9 pm at Keystone Church

Our February Event:  Rais Bhuiyan will describe the path he has been on since being shot in the face by a white supremacist, 10 days after 9/11. His story is about the transformational power of forgiveness, of embracing compassion and mercy, and of teaching others the beauty and peace found in acceptance and empathy. World Without Hate is a movement, stemming from Rais’s journey of survival to hope and healing, cultivating a world that we all deserve, inspiring a world without violence, a world without victims, and a World Without Hate. Rais will also share info about WWH’s Empathy Ambassadors Leadership Training Program. Following his talk, we will discuss in small groups.

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!
