The Summit for the Common Good
in Spokane, WA
Relationships are the key to getting good things done — they are a pathway to positive change.
Join 200 Spokane community leaders as bridges are built across divides and we look to build the common good of Spokane at the third annual Summit for Common Good on February 10, 2023 at the Spokane Central Library (906 W Main Ave, Spokane, WA 99201).
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 pairs of people who have successfully crossed divides, built effective relationships, and contributed to the common good.
The Summit’s "pairings" will demonstrate that relationships are the key to making progress and achieving positive solutions. Relationships are the mechanism for positive change; they are nonpartisan; they allow for embracing tensions, crossing boundaries, seeking understanding.
Our event will 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.
