Choosing collaboration over competition.

The past few years have been divisive in our communities, creating us vs them narratives everywhere we look - we create single-stories of our neighbors that keep us from listening and engaging, from believing the best about each other. We desperately need more spaces for intersection and listening, for seeking to notice the good in each other - we need hope that the future can look differently.

Imagine affinity or sector-based communities rallying together to see this happen, putting aside competition and scarcity, to reveal their impact in Grand Rapids. Whether it’s realtors, educators, creatives, accountants, social workers, or faith communities - what would happen if we could tangibly see the power we have when we come together?
