The Summit for the Common Good: Seattle, WA in February 2020

The Summit for the Common Good is an event organized by a diverse group of organizations and individuals and facilitated by Together Washington, a nonpartisan, nonreligious, nonprofit organization. The Summit will showcase individuals who have successfully crossed divides, built effective relationships, and contributed to the common good. The first summit was held February 7-8, 2020 in Seattle, WA.
