On the next Beloved Community, John Shuck speaks with Glenn Montogomery. He is the executive director of Vision Action Network. The mission of Vision Action Network is "to engage stakeholders across sectors to collaboratively address critical issues in Washington County.” Some of those issues include income inequality, cultural diversity, and housing and houselessness. We will also discuss initiatives such as Washington County Thrives that "is focused on a comprehensive, long-term investment strategy in proven programs that support people on their path to self-sufficiency." John will take your phone calls as we work together to build the Beloved Community.
