In empowered communities people have control over the decisions that shape their lives. Empowerment is at the heart of all forms of real justice.
By focusing on practical solutions we will advance the work of empowerment and justice with results. We do this by listening and learning from residents, businesses, and community organizations who are the most impacted and who have the expertise and experience that counts. It also takes a willingness to listen and collaborate across differences, and the ability to work with a wide variety of city, county, state, tribal, and federal partners.
