WHAT WE DO

We work with a variety of community partners to increase social and civic competencies to empower individuals to use their voice and rights to help themselves, and others. Moving from conversations to action takes skills, knowledge and relationships. Over the last several years, we organized several events and programs that laid the groundwork for where we are today.
