Our commitment to transformative change requires us to move people to act on shared values in ways that build power, change policy, and define institutions.
We believe community-driven change begins at the local level, where government and corporate policymakers are close enough to the ground to see their success as connected to our own. We employ four core strategies to address the root causes of economic inequality in our region:
- Through organizing and civic engagement we build power in communities that have been pushed to the margins of the political process.
- Our research and policy development places technical expertise in the hands of the community to craft cutting edge policy solutions.
- Our leadership development takes people at the helms of institutions and trains them to develop their capacity to govern with shared values.
- Through alliance building we increase our collective power and contribute to building the regional infrastructure for broad social change and impact.
