Get Involved

Welcome to our family!

This group is for community leaders who are here to fill in the gaps, serve as the connective tissue, and work behind the scenes to ensure that not only do we all weather the storm in times of crisis, but we strengthen as a community in the process.

Systemic change requires information sharing and collaboration among a variety of stakeholders.

  • Breaking silos is requisite to the partnerships required for collaboration.
  • Building trust is requisite for breaking silos.
  • Authentic communication (starting with listening and ending with relevant and responsible action) is the access to building trust.
  • Authentic communication as the basis for collaborative action creates systemic change.
