In the beginning, there was a story.

We aim to listen to and preserve narratives of social transformation based in consensus in diverse and sustainable communities in the Americas.

Our conversation begins where we live, And EVERYTHING we do ends up in a story. Urca Institute was born in Urca, and reaches across the Americas. Our commons.

Our paradigm for catalyzing change is age old: storytelling!

Connecting Residents, Institutions, Corporations, and Policymakers

If we are going to awaken minds to action, we have to remember a time when things worked, and envision ways in which things could be better, not only for ourselves, but for our neighbors too.

Urca Institute gathers stories that connect 1st, 2nd, and 3rd sectors in recognizing the causes that contribute to the improvement of their local communities. As a non-profit organization, we are non-partisan, and cannot endorse candidates for office, nor are we connected to any particular religious organization, rather we promote equality, one story at a time.
