CommunityThe community issues we choose to tackle serve as a microcosm of the challenges facing the nation as a whole. Committed, informed leaders and active citizens engage in constructive dialogue to craft local solutions that can have national implications.

Resilient Communities Initiative

Research conducted by the Wisconsin Policy Forum uncovered troubling trends impacting the future of our neighboring local communities.  Across the country, greater-metro areas are reversing similar negative trends.  Four common themes have emerged in each success story:  visionary cross-sector leaders who embrace change, recognition of the sum of the whole being greater than the individual parts, neighboring community governmental collaboration and a sense of urgency to quell negative trends before effects fully manifest.

Our mission is to catalyze collaboration among those with diverse viewpoints to explore new solutions that bring about change on issues that matter.  For us, nothing matters more than the future health and well-being of our local neighboring communities.
