Our intention is to enhance the work of Milwaukee’s citizens and community organizations already involved in community transformation.  We offer processes for connecting those who do not normally meet one another to build trust, share hopes, and discover how working together can build active citizenship and abundant communities. 


To seed Milwaukee communities with conversations, narratives, networks, and reflection practices.
