Before we left Cincinnati, Charlie and I were very involved with Vic Garcia and others in bringing the CoreChange concept to bear on Cincinnati's urban ills. The concept is very basic, but in essence, brings all types of stakeholders together to identify problems and solutions for the city. And by all types, we had former drug dealer/gang members sitting in a room with heads of United Way, Children's Hospital, etc. It was a powerful experience.
During the three day workshop in 2012, many ideas were generated. Some have been implemented. Now the CoreChange folks need to get the word out and build momentum. You can help by taking this brief survey on three different campaigns they have developed to engage the broader community in this important work.
I appreciate your taking the time to further this effort! Feel free to share the link with others.
