Layer 41
In my work with communities and organizations throughout Oregon, the glue that brings people together comes from getting them to talk about what they really care about. When people share what they value, then the conversations about issues totally change because they start from a common language rather than from difference. Values matter.

The research is so important because it speaks to the heart of Oregon and Oregonians. It’s not about voters or likely voters. It’s about community change and how we create it.
