Our purpose is to engage community members in our conversations by treating each voice as equal, each opinion as valid, and taking the high road with our efforts. We learn from each other in a climate created to allow for new and lasting friendships.
We encourage new people to participate through word of mouth, social media and/or through our family and friends. If you are waiting for an invitation to participate, this is it, please join us.
Each month, a conversation gathering is held to sometimes address a specific topic or promote on organized open forum (Talking Circle) to bring forward ideas, concerns, information, whatever is important that furthers the work of Rapid City Community Conversations.
Monthly conversations are typically held at Rapid CIty Hospital at 5:30pm; the date varies based on guest speaker availability.
We look forward to seeing you.
