PCRC is excited to present the final community briefing panel discussion for 2013, highlighting important topics within its Strategic Initiatives:

  • EMPOWERING YOUTH – September 12, 2013
  • ENGAGING COMMUNITIES – November 14, 2013

Engaging Communities Briefing:

When individuals come together in their communities and participate in the decisions that affect their lives, they are more likely to invest in the long-term outcome — feeling a sense of ownership and responsibility. Often, long histories of conflict and mistrust among individuals and groups create barriers to finding common ground and developing solutions. Different communication styles can result in misunderstandings and fuel tensions. However, PCRC sees these differences as assets. PCRC facilitates conversations so that people can hear different perspectives, mend fractured relationships, and develop creative solutions that reduce community violence and youth access to drugs and alcohol, welcome immigrant families, and better serve our diverse community.

This fourth Community Briefing in our 4-part series explores how PCRC partners with residents, service providers and local government to bring about these changes, and creates opportunities in San Mateo County for individuals and groups to successfully build, heal and revitalize their communities.

Panelists for November 14th:

  • Sgt. Dave Norris, Community Services & Media Relations, San Mateo Police Department
  • Gloria Brown, Chair, African American Community Health Advisory Committee
  • Malissa Netane, Prevention Partnership Specialist, Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center
  • Kevin Mullin, California Assemblymember, 22nd District & Former Mayor of South San Francisco

Moderated By:

Sarah Kremer

Program Director, Friends for Youth & Consultant
