The Civic Commons is a civic engagement organization seeking to create community and consensus in Northeast Ohio.

Did you know a recent survey conducted by the Knight Foundation found that fewer than 1 in 10 residents rated Akron welcoming to immigrants, gays, lesbians and young-talented college graduates? What are your thoughts? What can we do as a community to make Akron more welcoming to these populations?

Tell us at http://goo.gl/8uT2P or tweet us @civiccommons.

Your thoughts could help shape the future of Akron for generations to come.
