What is the Utah Citizen Summit?      
On November 12th we are coming together in Utah for a Citizens Summit to:

  • Celebrate what we have already accomplished in being more civil, compassionate, inclusive collaborative and productive.
  • Model how to bridge political and other divides through civil dialogue and creative problem solving.
  • Lay the groundwork for progress on identified issues and possible solutions.
Our invitation in this is simple:
1. Find someone you respect, even while disagreeing with about important things
2. Start a conversation about how Americans can come together in the years ahead.
3. Tell us what happens! 

Then bring what you learned and join us at the Utah Citizen Summit during the day on November 12 to participate in a rich day of sharing and conversation with others from around Utah. 
Contact Elliea@utahcompact.org if you are interested in participating!
