A second in a series of organizing meetings was held on September 8th at St. Anthony on the Lake in Pewaukee for the purpose of getting Common Ground moving in Waukesha County. Over the two sessions, over a dozen key organizations were represented including many faith communities and a Waukesha based University. Bernie Juno, Executive Director of the Hebron House shelter in Waukesha shared an example of the kind of issue and associated community organizing Common Ground could pursue in the future. Reverend Bobby Sinclair reviewed the next steps recommended for the Waukesha organizers as they consider Listening Sessions and Neighborhood walks building relationships, identifying leaders, and surfacing issues.
