We want your input!
From October 16-25, we're hosting working groups centered on our five cross-cutting categories of goals. We would like to invite you to join us as we strengthen our vision and explore how to overcome barriers while building on existing potential around each goal. We're well into our visioning and planning process and we have put together a preliminary draft of our Vision and Goals document (the second of our three big documents, based on 8 months of what we've been hearing from the community! Logistical information and the themes that each group will address can be found below. If you would like to join us, take a look at this teaser of the kinds of things that are inside the document.
