What is Common Ground U?

As members of Common Ground, we work to make a major impact on critical social and economic issues facing Southeastern Wisconsin. Changing these realities will continuously require new leadership with the energy and vision to make this happen, and that’s why we have created our Common Ground University sessions.

Learn the skills necessary for successful public action from our Common Ground team members. Some of the topics we will cover are:

• WHY ORGANIZE? The history, traditions and values of our religious and secular organizations

• HOW TO ORGANIZE individual relational meetings, listening sessions, research, negotiations and action

• WHAT WE DO TO CREATE CHANGE – Planning and conducting Issue Campaigns
