Action inspires change by leveraging individual, organizational, and institutional capacities for community transformation. We understand the environment of social change is dynamic and complex. We believe social innovation thrives with a solid foundation that is simultaneously adaptable, flexible, and responsive. That’s why we serve as a platform for emerging, grassroots groups to test ideas and generate community solutions.
Advancing social equity requires multi-stakeholder dialogue on critical issues. We advocate across sectors to shift from practices that are transactional to those practices that are relational. We build alliances to collectively move systems and communities towards sustainable and transformative change.
We INNOVATE by introducing new methods and ideas to address systemic challenges in our region.
We PARTNER with resident, government, business and philanthropic leaders to design cross-sector solutions for community transformation.
We LEARN by listening, inquiring, synthesizing information, and identifying patterns that will bridge systems and inspire place-based solutions.
