GC Resolve is a communication and consulting company designed to increase education and mobilization of the general public in order to build regenerative and resilient communities, and therefore resolve the problems that impact the day-to-day lives of the people that live there.  

GC Resolve focuses on grassroots community development, mobilization, and education to help equip communities with the tools they need to effectively make a difference.  An educated and engaged community equates to a more healthy and vibrant state, region and country.

Our partners include communities, non-profits, foundations, law firms, farmers, tribes and those that aim to advance good causes.


The real power in our country lies in its people.  Despite the frustrations with gridlock in Washington, D.C., the federal government, and the large multi-national corporations that influence our government so heavily, democracy is still designed to move us forward as long as goodwill is strong and vibrant.  To achieve this we must focus our goodwill on building community.

Citizens care about the strength of their community.  Through a more organized, stronger networked, and increasingly educated and engaged society, more opportunities will find their way back home.  GC Resolve seeks to build that community spirit.

Farm Free or Die

Extreme weather events are hitting America’s farmers hard, and with greater frequency than ever before. American Resilience Project's Farm Free or Die advocates for transformative agricultural policies that improve farming livelihoods and address the climate crisis. The stories of farmers on the front lines of severe environmental and economic adversity will catalyze support for policies that stabilize rural communities, strengthen food security, and incentivize soil health and carbon removal. With 2023 Farm Bill discussions underway, there is no better time than now.

    'Toxic Algae' Fouling Nebraska Lakes, Raising Water Quality Concerns

    Bosley was a giant of a dog – a cross between a mastiff and a Rottweiler. But he had a playful spirit, so it wasn’t unusual that on a spring day in 2004 he’d dash headlong into the sandpit lake near the Kappas family home, gulping water and chasing fish. The only remarkable detail of the otherwise routine trip to Buccaneer Bay, recalled owner Tom Kappas, was the bright green color of the water. Algae, he and his wife figured. Within an hour, Bosley was dead. And within days, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had a scientist on an airplane, headed to Nebraska to investigate Bosley’s death and that of another dog. The scientist looked at the “green yuck” in the Cass County lake, Kappas recalled, and said, “Oh that’s not supposed to be here.”

    Pillen's Water: High Nitrate Detected on Hog Farms Owned by Nebraska's Governor

    Covered swine barns dot the landscape near Platte Center, where tens of thousands of hogs are raised and fed. Many of these barns are owned by a local boy who grew up a few miles west of the village, built his small family farm into a global pork empire and then became governor. Gov. Jim Pillen’s hog operations bring jobs and prosperity to this area near his hometown. They also may bring risk to Platte Center’s drinking water. The town had to dig a new municipal well three years ago, after another well recorded nitrate at nearly 12 parts per million. That’s higher than the level the federal government says is safe to drink.
