Redwood City Together is a collaboration of caring community members and organizations working to build a stronger, inclusive, and welcoming community. As our community continues to grow and change, Redwood City Together believes we're most successful when we appreciate our shared values and build on the strength of our diversity. People from all backgrounds want safe streets for our children, neighbors who look out for each other and a thriving community where we can prosper together. The group is coordinated by Redwood City 2020, a collaborative of key public and private organizations in our community working to ensure the health and success of all children, youth and families served by the Redwood City School District. Together, the partners of RWC 2020 identify barriers and then implement collaborative approaches that will open the doors to success. Visit Redwood City 2020 at www.rwc2020.org.
