The more we know about the past,

the more we know about each other.  Understanding the connection between people and events builds unity and trust, clearing away the obstacles to peace, progress and prosperity. 

is about the history we are making today.

The Mobile Dialogue was created with the understanding

 

that a city prospers when citizens share a sense of ownership in its future,

when their voice is recognized and validated;

that knowledge leads to commitment

and when citizens are committed to the community,

they share a responsibility

for making it the best it can be,

now and in the future.
