About the Growing Goshen Together Conversation Series

The Goshen Community Relations Commission (CRC) and Goshen Community Schools (GCS) began conversations in 2018 to brainstorm possibilities toward building bridges between diverse groups in the Goshen community. Recognizing diversity of all kinds throughout the city, they saw an opportunity for promoting tolerance, understanding and gratitude for all people. This led to a pilot community conversation, Growing Goshen Together, on April 25, 2019, held at Goshen High School. Responses from that event called for more conversations. Through continued conversations about the issues facing the Goshen community, CRC and GCS hope to continue fostering relationships throughout the Goshen community.
