Case Study:

A local government was doing great work, but every community meeting they hosted left both the City and residents frustrated and without a way forward. We worked with the City to understand its development goals, and with the community to understand their perspectives. Then, we designed a series of events to help both sides express their needs and plan to work together. One participant said of the process: “That was the first time I felt listened to in 5 years. Finally, I think we have a plan for what’s next.”

what our clients say

We work with organizations of all sizes, from grassroots community groups to state-wide government agencies.
