Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren: Finding Common Ground

“Being respectful doesn’t make policy divisions any worse, sometimes it makes it better and sometimes you can find common ground.

“We are grateful to Congresswoman Representative Zoe Lofgren for dialoging with our youth leaders and staff about the qualities of successful leaders. Among them were her powerful thoughts about the importance of civility in civic dialog and the need to find common ground.

We’re on the road for our six-week, three-state West Coast “To Us, You Matter Civic Engagement Tour” through August 6. We are proud to have been invited by the people and leaders of 40 communities to meet and partner with them to discuss how to integrate young people into civic engagement issues and solutions to strengthen our democracy.
