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.

A Climate Reckoning In The Heartland

CBS News followed GC Resolve Founder and President Graham Christensen during the historic 2019 bomb cyclone and flood in Nebraska.  Christensen highlights how regenerative farming is the solution to being resilient in the face of increasing climate extremes that are plaguing farmers and ranchers.

    21 Predictions for 2021: Twenty-one visionary climate and justice leaders point the way to progress in the year ahead.

    We’ll grow strong regional food systems Graham Christensen Founder and president of GC Resolve CLOSE “As global supply chains fracture and grocery store shelves dry up, consumer demand for local products is growing. Nebraska is seeing new energy around legislation that supports a decentralized network of meatpacking plants, which could help enforce worker safety, generate revenue for small ranchers, and strengthen regional marketplaces. With that comes more opportunities for regenerative agriculture, which cultivates soil health and draws down carbon. But local, sustainable farming means so much more than that. It creates food security. It fosters relationships between rural and urban entrepreneurs. It connects consumers with farmers. It even protects clean water. I’m looking forward to all of those things coming to fruition now that public support is strong and we have an administration that’s willing to fight for them.”

    Regenerative agriculture is nothing new: why Nebraskans are engaging in sustainable farming

Clay Govier, a fifth-generation Nebraskan farmer, used to spray herbicides on his family farm’s crops every summer. Strangely, he started noticing himself acting meaner every year around the application time. After talking to an older farmer who experienced the same issues, the two usually-friendly farmers connected the dots. “You start realizing how these herbicides are impacting your endocrine system, which is your emotion,” Govier said. His personal discovery is backed by scientific research: many chemicals that are endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDTs) are found in pesticides, according to research from the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. Govier thought more about the issue. Even pesticides, which are intended to kill just earthworms and other bugs, could negatively affect the health of the crops he’s growing, the animals who eat them and the people who eat both. “So you start talking about the soil web and food web. Just how all of these things are interconnected,” he said. After these realizations, he decided to cut his chemical use to prevent harm to both his own health and the environment. If he continued, he would be the most likely on the farm to get cancer from the exposure to chemicals, he said.
