Empowering Residents & Sharing Stories of Resilience
Civic stories paint the past, present, and future.
AMPLIFY RESIDENT VOICE
Each month, Neighborhood Associates is highlighting the civic story of an incredible resident. Civic stories reflect a neighborhood's history and fortitude. Told and retold, by one neighbor to the next, these stories of strength resonate through generations and forge a community’s sense of direction, shared values, and Public Kinship. And at the heart of each civic story are the residents who rose to uplift their neighbors. Amplifying their voices and their civic stories are key to community-building and always important to share.
STORIES OF RESILIENCE
Civically engaged residents lead the way, everyday.
