It takes initiative to lead a community where it wants to go. Step one is settling on the goal — and that takes a lot of what we offer: listening, synthesizing and consensus-building. We’re engaging our community, making grants, training leaders, connecting people and organizations, while we tackle challenges and explore opportunities.
