The Summit for the Common Good

Relationships are the key to getting good things done—they are a pathway to positive change.

We believe the way to bring wholeness to our city is through relationships.

Relationships are the key to getting good things done—and they are the mechanism for positive change in our city.

Relationships are nonpartisan; they embrace tensions, cross boundaries, and seek understanding.

Relationships are catalysts; they bring people together, cultivate enthusiasm and energy, and can bring healing.

On February 7th & 8th in Seattle, WA we held our initial Summit for the Common Good.

During it, we were fortunate to feature inspiring pairs of people who have successfully overcome divides to benefit the common good. Most agree this is something we certainly need today—leaders who know how to work through differences to benefit all the people of our region.

Our pairings included:

Dan Evans
Former Washington Governor
Michael Dukakis
Former Massachusetts Governor & Democratic Presidential Candidate
Ben Franz-Knight
Former Director Pike Place Market Development Authority
Colleen Echohawk
Executive Director of the Chief Seattle Club
Andre Taylor
Executive Director of Not This Time!
Proponent of Washington Initiative 940 & Community Activist
Sue Rahr
Former King County Sheriff
