The Common Ground for Action (CGA) Forums Series is Back
The 2016 CGA Fridays were a huge hit. Demand for trying the new platform and giving our network of moderators more practice was so high that we're back at it for 2017. This winter, we will have a CGA forum each week, with some in the evening and Saturdays so more of our network can join in. If you're a CGA moderator and want practice or a refresher workshop, we've got those too.
In February, the CGA Forum Series will be using the NEW Safety and Justice: How Should Communities Reduce Violence? issue guide. These forums will be part of our 2017 series of reports to policymakers on how people are thinking about issues.

NIF member Kara Dillard is also leading a webinar specifically about the Safety and Justice issue guide for moderators who want to hold CGA forums. Kara says the online prep session will "discuss each of the three options in depth, outline key questions to ask in the personal stake sections as well as in the options, and consider ways to help your participants reflect on this controversial topic."
The workshop will be offered twice in February; you can register at the links below.
