Common Ground 2021
July 16 - July 30
The 5th anniversary of Common Ground, beginning July 16, 2021, will be a two-week celebration of the work and passion of hundreds of community member hosts who will bring together thousands of people at events across our region. United by common questions, Common Ground conversations have the same goal: to create spaces where meaningful connections are made and purposeful actions begin.
Growing Common Ground: People, Place, Shared Power
This year as the world continues to shift around us, we invite you to join us to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Common Ground. While we may still be physically distanced, these conversations can connect us and strengthen community. To navigate our current reality and prepare for the future, we begin by acknowledging all that has changed and so much that has not. We continue learning by listening to the voices calling for justice, healing, and progress. We commit to grow together.
This summer, Common Ground invites the community to pick up the threads of past conversations and weave them together with new experiences to create a strong, resilient social fabric. Join your neighbors in conversations where we can listen to and learn from each other, deepen our understanding of the places we call home, and build a vision for our community that unites people across diverse and varied spaces to share power and opportunity.
Add your voice to the conversation and help grow Common Ground.
2021 Conversation Questions:
