Held on August 7, this Summit was an opportunity for community partners to advance their understanding of how systemic decisions, conditions and policies impact our health and overall quality of life. Participants learned about the power of coalitions and ways that collective work can strengthen communities and bring about positive changes for vulnerable populations.
The public forum featured the progress of three local coalitions that are working in the areas of housing, community organizing and local food system improvements. Participants received an overview of systems change theory and collective impact, plus learned the strategies being used by these three coalitions to initiate desired changes.
The Summit was facilitated by Jason Alexander, Principal and Co-Founder of Capacity for Change, LLC.
