GrassRoots is a Wikicity where political entities can interconnect on the issues, actions, projects, and events that occur throughout the range of geopolitical levels that people are a part of and make.

If you have an event to post please post it within the appropriate geopolitical level. You have been linked to this page by the "Current Events Tab" from the default sidebar provided by the wiki farm "wikicities." Posting things here will not maximize the power of this grassroots wiki as it is structured by geopolitical levels and specific spaces within them. As the site grows, the events posted in this page, will not be organized in any geopolitical sense.
