|Shoreline Communities Rising! meeting|
Shoreline Communities Rising! is a non-partisan neighborhood action group, with a stated mission of "Helping each of us become the activist we want to be, while shaping a future that works for everyone."
At the March 5 meeting, about a dozen working groups shared information about what they have discovered and explored from topics identified at previous gatherings.
Most of these groups have a point-person and include such interests as “Accessibility to Health Care,” “Disaster Preparedness,” “Needs of the Vulnerable,” “Immigrant Rights,” “Media,” “Nonviolent Communication,” “Resource Sharing,” and “Sustainable Living.”
Other working groups can arise from the interests of those who attend the meetings. Based on input from all in attendance and from a recent email survey, next steps are being determined.
The focus of the April meeting will be shifting toward creating actions designed to address some of the many challenging issues (see above) facing our community and the larger world around us.
Rob Beem, City of Shoreline's Community Resources Manager, will be speaking at this meeting, to discuss ways that CR and Shoreline can perhaps collaborate on issues important to all of us, particularly meeting the needs of our most vulnerable citizens.
