WELCOME TO THE LOCAL VOICES NETWORK digital resources page

Cortico’s Local Voices Network aims to build a healthier public sphere. We do so by gathering the kinds of rich, deep stories that surface when we get together with neighbors in person and let conversation unfold over time. We share those conversations with our partners so they can tell more authentic, timely stories about what is on the minds of community members, especially of those whose voices are not heard or heeded by policy makers.

Currently all Local Voices Network conversations are being held online via Zoom. We look forward to hosting in-person conversations again as it becomes safe to do so.
