1. We hear from community developers across the country how difficult it is for them to find resources to support community organizing. The statistics you quote are deeply disturbing; it is irrefutable that this lack of engagement, especially in low-income communities, impairs our democracy on a national level. It also limits the ability to make positive change within these neighborhoods.

    We study what does and doesn’t work to improve the quality of life in low-income communities. While there are areas of disagreement, community developers have strong agreement around this: Unless you commit upfront time, energy and resources to community organizing, comprehensive community change simply can not occur. In too many communities, this is a hard-learned lesson. But it has been learned by community developers. Now we need to figure out how to support the community organizing that is so desperately needed.
