Garland Yates, Community Democracy Workshop | At Community Democracy Workshop, we work with residents to put them in more powerful positions to help change their communities. With institutional stakeholders, this community democracy approach might be unsettling, but we have to help them feel comfortable about walking into a process that potentially is confrontational. We must concentrate on making space around the table safe. Not false or phony, but safe.

We must use our influence and role to help create that kind of environment so that our communities can have the power and capacity to see the changes they want to see. more »
The webinar will examine how community wealth building in rural areas and small towns is proving to be a powerful, place-based approach to leverage local benefit from existing assets in new and innovative ways. Presenters will cover a range of examples and tools, and explore the role of funders to catalyze economic development and impact investing in local communities. We will hear what they are learning and the challenges they are wresting with. There will be time afterwards for in depth questions and answers with our speakers.
