I am passionate about being an engaged citizen. I believe that it is the responsibility and right of living in a democracy. So I decided to ask a few friends and neighbors to join me each week at my dining room table. We started this in February 2017 as a group of 5.  Now there are dozens of active members and 300+ Facebook friends.

We discuss issues, write letters, make calls.  We have written more than 7,000 letters in 3-1/2 years.

My hope is that our representatives listen to us.  My hope is that more people become engaged citizens.  My hope is that we maintain democracy- with all its promises, messiness and humanity. – Lisa
