Connecting Community, Activating Change On February 4, 2013 community members gathered at the Goodrich Memorial Library in Newport, Vermont for a workshop convened by CommunityMatters and Newport City Renaissance Corporation. The day-long workshop focused on discussing concrete tools and ideas for strengthening Newport’s ability to solve problems, make decisions, and build a resilient city. These photos represent the commitments of attendees to take action following the workshop. CommunityMatters is a national partnership of seven organizations that share the belief that people have the power to solve their community’s problems and direct future growth and change.
