Grassroots Voices

Your neighbors are standing up for what matters.


Hundreds of Palo Altans are taking a stand for their community values – putting resident voices at the table in public decision making. They don’t all share the same priorities, and sometimes their interests clash, but what they all have in common is a belief that Palo Alto is worth fighting for.

And they all need help:  troops on the ground (or on-line) to spread their message; people willing to attend and/or speak at City meetings; letter-writers. They need folks with fresh ideas about how to make their case or find and negotiate balanced solutions. Most importantly, they need you to pay attention to local matters and get involved.

Find a group below that shares your interest, or form your own and we’ll help spread the word.

We’re sure there are resident efforts that haven’t hit our radar screen. Please let us know who we’ve missed.

  1. The Rinconada Masters team has been under the city of Palo Alto for 46 years . They hired an outside company
    to run the rinconada pool and this coming year the company is not renewing our contract.
    We are going to City council and park and rec meetings this week to fight for our program. we have a lot of
    65+ swimmers that workout for health and wellness. WE are willing to cut some lanes to keep our swimmers
    swimming. Anyone that knows the rinconada pool knows that is the only community pool in PA It is now
    going to a private for money company. If you know any one that can help us on the council or parks/rec
    please ask them to help our team……
    thanks carol Macpherson Head coach and founder.
