Focusing on ValpoNEXT initiatives No. 1: Engaging Our Citizens and No. 3: Embracing Our Diversity, this community action focus helps our organization seek to help Valpo be welcoming and inclusive in all dimensions, from civic engagement to housing and jobs. Citizen engagement and dialog are keys to success. The board of directors wants to convene citizens with varying and opposing viewpoints into a respectful dialog (whether it be online or in person) that will begin to correct myths and misunderstandings about those of a different race, religion, sexual orientation or socio-economical class. It also wants to play an active role in supporting initiatives that are being pursued by other groups and organizations in community and celebrate the diversity within the Valparaiso community.
