My Neighborhood Counts. Everybody Counts

Please join us for Virtual Civic Engagement: More than just ‘likes’ – Civic Participation and Interaction in a Virtual World

This series presents both panels discussing their efforts to continue civic engagement and opportunities to participate in virtual civic engagement – both ‘traditional’ participation via committees, meetings, and public discussion and creative means of civic engagement in the virtual environment we find ourselves in.

This series will primarily run through the month of June – it will be at different times throughout the month, so stay tuned for announcements

Kick Off: an invitation to participate in the All-In Cincy Coalition meeting this Thursday, 3-5 pm.  This meeting is specifically asking for community participation to help them craft their Health Policy Equity Policy Platform for COVID-19 Response and Recovery


Join All-In Cincinnati as we discuss the COVID-19 Crisis and our next steps. The All-In Cincinnati Equity Coalition is unique because we can create sustainable policy changes comprehensively across each of our priority areas which include health, housing, education, economic mobility, and justice.  Check out the Human Impact Partner’s Health Equity Policy Platform for COVID-19 Response and Recovery and please come prepared to discuss.

And to our local business community partners: 


The Neighborhood Summit is THE annual event which brings together hundreds of community leaders and volunteers, city officials and non-profits in a day long series of seminars and workshops aimed at helping citizens work effectively together to improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods. Last year’s event was attended by over 600 people.

Invest in Neighborhoods’ 19th annual Summit would not be possible without the hard work of our Summit partners, our volunteers, and the generosity of our funders

For more information, contact us:

As always, the Neighborhood Summit is free to everyone, however donations (of any amount!) are always welcome to help us continue to bring you this quality event every year!
