Non-partisan group organizes meetings to find solutions to local problems

RONAN – People gathered to learn how to bring individuals with different points of view together on Tuesday evening in an effort to create positive outcomes for the community.

Mission Valley Rises: Democracy Engaged! hosted the event at the Ronan Senior Citizen Center. The group is centered on the idea that solutions to problems can be found if people with differing and similar opinions come together to find common goals.

“We are a local, non-partisan, community-led group, committed to exploring issues that affect the lives of our community,” the group notes. “We believe that active listening and civil dialogue will bring us together to solve the problems that face us all.”     

Member Gail Trenfield said people can have different opinions, but letting those ideas divide the community isn’t productive. “We can’t stand as a divided community,” she said.
