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, January 4th,     7 - 9 pm at Keystone Church

Our January Event:  Sarah van Gelder, co-founder of YES! Magazine, discussing her new book, The Revolution Where You Live: Stories From a 12,000 Mile Journey Across a New America. She will talk about the grassroots leaders in rural communities, small towns, and neglected urban neighborhoods throughout the U.S. who are confronting racism, the climate crisis, and poverty. After Sarah's talk we will discuss, in small groups, how these stories can inspire our own activism.

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!
