Listen & Learn: Engaging Missing Voices to Inspire Local Action

Presented by Leanne Tingay and Joan Wagner, Community Heart & Soul
Before you start throwing around project ideas or crunching numbers, take some time to simply listen to what people say about the community. By hearing each other’s stories, community members find new reasons to connect, empathize, and motivate one another. In this fall edition of the Regional Rev Up, learn how to identify what matters most to the whole community to drive local decision-making and action.
