Coalitions – The Cornerstone of Effective Change
Building coalitions to drive positive change is the cornerstone of our “melting pot” society. Americans come from diverse backgrounds and abound with ideas on how to improve their lives and their communities. Effective communication, respect for all perspectives and establishing common ground are the tools necessary to build coalitions that can unite and drive positive outcomes. Be it in the policy arena or in the court of public opinion, well built coalitions are a powerful force and can create lasting change in our society.
The Middle Resolution Policy Foundation seeks to unite coalitions around common sense policies that improve the lives of all Virginians. By doing so, citizens are empowered to engage in their local communities at a grassroots level as well as at the state or national level. Most importantly and fundamental to the focus of the Foundation are outcomes that are centered around the advancement of equal opportunity, equal justice and personal responsibility.
