The Civic Salon

The Civic Salon emerged as a “pop-up” community gathering space in January, 2017, intended to help incubate a more empathic, democratic, and resilient community.  Starting with a few events, we invited the community to use the Salon to initiate and convene additional activities that upheld principles of mutual respect, compassion, civic engagement and social justice.

Events included:

  • Community Game Nights with Better World Books
  • Asset mapping work sessions
  • A community Open Space
  • Conversation Cafes and dialogues on health care and immigration
  • Immigration resource presentations
  • Community potlucks and fundraisers
  • Trainings on dialogic process and community organizing
